Conflict in the Middle East
Middle Eastern Countries are located in the center of Western Asia and Egypt. This region is mainly inhabited by people who are of Islamic Religion. Over the course of history, this region has experienced different types of conflict. The world became aware of the issues affecting the Middle East during the time of Osama bin Laden who was the founder of al-Qaeda. This brought about the deployment of troops from Western Countries into the Middle East.
With the rise of various radical groups in that part of the world, families have been displaced. The world has witnessed the rise of the latest terror group ISIS, which has brought a lot of destruction in Syria. Western countries continue to fight these terror groups hoping that one day, there will be peace. However, as the battle continues, various relief groups have been founded to help people in the affected areas.
