Short summary: The conflict in Syria may have moved on to a less confrontational phase, but the war is far from over. There are still instances of violence in many parts of the country, including Idlib in the north. In others, people lack the most basic of necessities. The idea of returning, for many who have fled, is fraught with danger. Those associated with the opposition, whether they belong to it or not, remain at high risk of persecution and arrest. Many things stand between today and a time when Syrians can return in safety.
