SOHR: 600,000 people killed, 2 million wounded over the past 11 years in Syria

​​​​​​​The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that more than 600,000 people, including more than 160,000 civilians, have been killed and more than two million wounded in the Syrian crisis since its inception in mid-March 2011, and that about 13 million people have been displaced inside and outside the country.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which has been keeping pace with the events of the Syrian crisis since its inception, has documented the number of victims and injured since the beginning of the Syrian crisis on March 15, 2011 until now.

Out of the total number of victims, 160,681 civilians were: 120,158 males, 15,237 females, and 25,286 children, including 139,457 civilians who were killed by ground and air bombardments, bullets by Damascus government forces and under torture inside its prisons, in addition to the Russian bombing. 8,649 civilians were killed by the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries in the so-called National Army, Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS/ Daesh.

The Syrian Observatory also documented the killing of 338,976 non-civilians, distributed as follows:

Damascus government forces 91,267

Groups loyal to the Damascus government, Iran, and Russia 67,242

Lebanese Hezbollah 1,712

Pro-Iranian and Russian groups of non-Syrian nationalities 8628

Mercenaries of the Turkish occupation 107,988

Defectors from Damascus government forces 3,588

ISIS mercenaries 41,101

Non-Syrian mercenaries loyal to Russia 266

Turkish occupation army 238

Anonymous and other 2,832

The observatory was unable to document the losses in the ranks of the Global Coalition Forces due to the extreme secrecy.

The Syrian Observatory indicated that this statistic did not include more than 55 thousand citizens who were killed under torture in the detention and prisons of the Damascus government, nor did it include hundreds of elements of the Lebanese Hezbollah.

This statistic did not include the fate of more than 3,200 abducted civilians and fighters in the prisons of ISIS mercenaries, in addition, it did not include the fate of more than 4,100 prisoners and missing persons from the Damascus government forces and militiamen loyal to them, and more than 1,800 abducted by the mercenaries of the Turkish occupation and ISIS.

The continuous military operations, bombings and shelling also resulted in the injury of more than 2.1 million Syrian citizens with various injuries and permanent disabilities, while about 13 million other citizens, including hundreds of thousands of children and hundreds of thousands of female citizens, were displaced between the areas of asylum and displacement, and the infrastructure, hospitals, schools and properties were destroyed.
