,000 Syrian Deaths
The brutal civil war has so far killed over 511,000 Syrians, leaving President Assad’s troops in control of only a small part of the country, with the remainder controlled by the Kurds, the Nusra Front, the Druze, Hezbollah and the Da'ish, also known as Islamic State.
Due to the conflict, over 14 MILLION of Syria’s normal population of around 22 million, have been forced to flee their homes. Millions have fled across the borders of Syria into neighbouring countries. The refugees are now living in three main areas - those parts of The Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan with easy land access to the most populated areas of Syria.
Syrian conflict continues
The Syrian conflict has now entered its seventh year but and the number of people fleeing the war zone is still rising, although with recent peace initiatives by Russia and Iran, this is expected to staboilse shortly. The total number of displaced Syrians (i.e. refugees) is however, now in excess of 14 million.
