Background: Following the breakup of the Ottoman Empire during World War I , France administered Syria until its independence in 1946. The country lacked political stability , however , and experienced a series of military coups during its first decades. Syria united with Egypt in February 1958 to form the United Arab Republic. In September 1961 , the two entities separated , and the Syrian Arab Republic was reestablished. In November 1970 , Hafiz al-ASAD , a member of the Socialist Ba'th Party and the minority Alawite sect , seized power in a bloodless coup and brought political stability to the country. In the 1967 Arab-Israeli War , Syria lost the Golan Heights to Israel. During the 1990s , Syria and Israel held occasional peace talks over its return. Following the death of President al-ASAD , his son , Bashar al-ASAD , was approved as president by popular referendum in July 2000. Syrian troops - stationed in Lebanon since 1976 in an ostensible peacekeeping role - were withdrawn in April 2005. During the July-August 2006 conflict between Israel and Hizballah , Syria placed its military forces on alert but did not intervene directly on behalf of its ally Hizballah.
