The Significance of Southern Syria - The Elements and Trajectory of a Civil War
KAS and MdF publish Policy Paper on future scenarios in the region
In spite of its geostrategic significance, the south of Syria has received less media and political attention than the rest of the war-torn country. In their policy paper for KAS and Maison du Futur, Frederic Hof and Faysal Itani from the Atlantic Council explain the relevance of the Syrian south for all actors involved. The two authors compare three possible scenarios for the future of the region and argue that an Iranian dominance at the borders to Jordan and Israel could be the most likely outcome of the current conflict.
