Modern-day Syrians are an overall indigenous Levantine people. Genetically, they are most closely related to their immediate Levantine neighbours.Syrians also descend largely from a blend of the various groups indigenous to their country, in the case of Syria, most of whom were of the Christian faith and speakers of Aramaic; a language introduced by an earlier conquest. Syrians today, whether Muslim, Christian or other, are therefore a thoroughly Arab people, and it is these Syrian Arabs, together with some 400,000 UNRWA Palestinian Arabs (Muslim, Christian or other) which make up over 90% of the population.
Just left and center are Syrians. The woman on the right is Egyptian.
