Syria has been suffering from a civil war since March 2011. Seven years since, the violence and conflict continue to grip the country, killing about 400,000 people and displacing over five million more.
Kurds, as one of the ethnic components in Syria, have been a victim of the war with hundreds of thousands of them fleeing to neighboring countries and Europe.
