SOHR: More than 300,000 civilians have been killed in Syria in 10 years, a UN report says

More than 300,000 civilians have been killed in Syria in 10 years, a UN report says

The United Nations said in a report that the ongoing crisis in Syria killed 36,887 civilians between March 1, 2011 and March 31, 2021, while more than 100 prisoners, including women, were killed in one camp.

The UN Human Rights Council released a report in Geneva yesterday stating that at least 83 civilians have been killed every day in the crisis-stricken country of Syria for the past ten years. The total death toll is 1.5% of the pre-crisis population.

Michelle Bachelet, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said the report was based on an analysis of available civilian casualty figures. The report does not include the number of soldiers or militants killed in the clashes, but the number is in the millions. The report does not include the number of deaths whose families buried them without informing authorities.

This report is based on information obtained from eight different sources. These include the Damascus Center for Human Rights Studies, the Center for Statistics and Research, the Syrian Human Rights Network, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Violation Documentation Center. The report includes individual details of the deaths of 143,350 civilians, including their full names, dates and locations.

The conflict in Syria began in March 2011 with peaceful protests against the regime of Bashar al-Assad, which soon spread to different parts of the country and escalated into a multi-faceted conflict. Later world powers also got involved in it. The conflict soon turned into a civil war that killed millions and wreaked havoc.

There is a temporary concentration camp in the Kurdish northeastern region of Al-Houl, where 56,000 people are still being held. Most of them are Syrian and Iraqi citizens and some of them belong to ISIS.
