Syria is currently in the 8 stages of Genocide. Syria falls under the Classification stage, Symbolization, Organization and Extermination.

The vast majority have been commited by government forces, though Navi Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, has said that both side appear to have committed war crimes.
