By now, you should be getting comfortable with the general history of the conflict.
If you've gotten everything I've listed so far, there are a couple of new things you can look at:
A) You can try to figure out the recent pattern of violence : looking at news sources spread over the past year or so, you should be able to give a general summary of what's going on in terms of military action, anywhere on the spectrum from a quiet, immobile stalemate all the way to major military operations to take and hold territory.
B) The other thing you can try to discover is what each group in your conflict has publicly claimed as its mission or objective.
Starting with this post, I'd like you to copy-paste the URL of each of your sources at the bottom of your comment. This will be helpful for Phase 3, and it will make it easier to show if you find any significant differences.
Some tips for everyone:
1) Don't forget that some work on your conflict may well have been done by somebody last year: go back over old posts, find those people, and see what they've said in terms of background information, sources, etc.
2) Finding (even downloading and printing) a map of your conflict zone will make it easier to keep track of who owns what and what happens where.
