After Syria's president was ousted, the ensuing power vacuum led to massive civil unrest. Bands of looters, as well as Islamic Militants took to the streets of every major urban center. On the 18th of May, 2036, a hospital in the city of Latakia was seized by FI militants, resulting in a multi-day standoff between security personnel and local volunteer fighters. Though negotiations were going smoothly, the third day would be the turning point of the engagement after FI militants executed 12 hostages.

This picture, taken by a local shopkeep, shows USEC and local fighters attempting one last round of negotiations before breaching the hospital.
