No sorry I couldn't explain properly.|||||There are 3 stakeholders || 1) Assad Shia ruler backed by Russia || 2)ISIS - Sunni Terrorists || 3) Rebels - Against Assad's​ regime backed by US |||||| Everyone is against ISIS ||| So US and Russia had decided to support ​Assad against ISIS and many talks for ceasefire happened​without results |||| Now Trump has again changed that stance of cooperation with Russia and Asaad and thus bombed Assad's military (as explained in next lecture)
