Birth from the Waist is one of several Syrian soap operas airing during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan this year, almost all of them dealing with the Syrian civil war, now in its third year, spotlighting a conflict in which more than 100,000 people have been killed and millions of others uprooted from their homes. The series have captivated millions of viewers across the Arab world. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
