If you're confused about what's going on in Syria, don't worry you're not alone. That's why NewsChannel 7 went on the hunt collecting answers to your most commonly asked questions.

Where is Syria? Why are the people of Syria fighting? What role does the United States really play in the situation? These are just some of the questions people have concerning this complex conflict.

First, Syria is a country in the Middle East located on the eastern banks of the Mediterranean Sea bordered by Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Turkey.
