Syrians are marking 10 years since peaceful protests against President Bashar al-Assad’s government erupted in March 2011, touching off a popular uprising that quickly turned into a full-blown war.

Despite a decade of fighting and a broken country, al-Assad remains firmly in power, thanks to military support from Iran and Russia, after nearly half a million people were killed.

Many Syrians say the international community failed them.

There are also those that blame the opposition for failing to provide credible alternative leadership.

Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reports on how infighting led to wars within the war.
