The current civil war in Syria began in 2011 after an uprising against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Assad practiced an authoritarian regime that had been in place since his father, Hafiz al-Assad became president in 1971. Bashar al-Assad's government used violent tactics to suppress demonstrators and extensively used police, military, and paramilitary forces to quell the demonstrations. Opposition militias formed in 2011, and by the following year, Syria had broken out into a full-fledged civil war.

Estimates of the total number of deaths in the Syrian Civil War, by opposition activist groups, vary between 384,000 and about 577,660 as of May 2020. On 23 April 2016, the United Nations and Arab League Envoy to Syria put out an estimate of 400,000 that had died in the war.
