This is what I meant Iam sorry I was misunderstood.
In the past like way past
In 636 A.D., the Muslim Omayyads from Arabia conquered Damascus, and most of the population gradually converted to Islam. Arabic became the common
language. During the 10th and 11th centuries, the time of the Crusades, Europeans occupied parts of Syria. In 1187, the Europeans were driven out by
Arab armies, led by a Kurd known as Salah al-Din or Saladin. The dynasty he founded was defeated in turn by the Mongols in 1260.
In 1516, the Turkish Ottomans conquered the area. The Ottomans ruled until the early 20th century and strongly influenced the development of modern
Syria. When the Ottoman Empire was defeated in the First World War, France and England competed for control of the country. Despite attempts by Syrian
nationalists to force the French out, the French remained in control of the country until the end of the Second World War. In 1946, the United Nations
acknowledged Syria’s independence. French troops left Syria in 1946, on April 17, which is now celebrated throughout Syria as Evacuation Day.

In the 3rd century A.D., the powerful Queen Zenobia of Palmyra ruled Syria after the death of her husband the king. Her armies controlled all of Syria
and some of the surrounding area. The Romans fought against her and eventually defeated her. She was taken to Rome where she ended her days..
The establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 led to conflict between Israel and the Arab nations, including Syria. In 1958, Syria and Egypt united
to form a single nation, but when Egypt tried to control Syria, the Syrians resisted. The union ended in 1961. On March 8, 1963, the Ba’ath Arab
Party came to power. The Six-Day War between Israel and Syria occurred in 1967. After the war, Syria lost the Golan Heights, an area southwest of
Damascus, to Israel. This area is still a matter of dispute between the two countries.
