The Syrian Campaign is an ongoing coalition aerial campaign in Syria aimed at limiting the offensive capabilities of the Syrian Armed Forces as part of World War III. Since the campaign began in April 2014, much of Syria's weapons arsenal has been destroyed and many of its armed forces have been killed. Initially, only the United States took part in airstrikes, but as the war progressed, many more of its allies agreed to also commit air power. Since June, naval combat has also been involved in the campaign as coalition forces have been active in striking Syrian ships and launching cruise missiles at Syrian military targets. Ships have also shot down Syrian aircraft with surface to air missiles. Some of Syria's allies in World War III, such as Russia, Iran, Pakistan and Cuba have assisted it in defending its airspace and have also bombed coalition warships.
