Iran Continues to Back Assad
Iran has just supplied Assad with $3.6 billion in oil in exchange for the "right to invest in Syria." Its unclear what these investments will consist of, but it probably has to do with rebuilding the country's broken infrastructure. Iran is Syria's main regional backer, and Syria needs oil because production has crashed since the start of the civil war. 100,000 people have been killed so far in the war.
