Syria: Over 60,000 dead in Syria: UN

03-01-2013

At least 60,000 people have died in Syria's conflict, UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay said on Wednesday, citing an "exhaustive" UN-commissioned study.

Over five months of analysis, researchers cross-referenced seven sources to compile a list of 59,648 individuals reported killed between March 15, 2011, and Nov. 30, 2012.

"Given there has been no let-up in the conflict since the end of November, we can assume that more than 60,000 people have been killed by the beginning of 2013," Pillay said. "The number of casualties is much higher than we expected, and is truly shocking."

The figure is a third higher than that provided by opposition activists, who put the death toll at 40,000. The last death toll provided by the UN stood at 20,000.

Reports of those killed do not take into account the number of Syrians injured or those displaced in the conflict. Many have fled to the neighboring countries of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq, while others have been forced to migrate internally from rural areas to urban ones, or from city to city.

As of Sunday, the total number of registered refugees and individuals awaiting registration with the United Nations (UN) was 568,958. Twenty percent were said to be under the age of eleven, while a little over 20 percent of the refugees were of 'adult'-age, between the ages of 18 and 59.

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), in their weekly report Sunday, said there were 170,637 Syrian Refugees in Lebanon. While this figure includes the 126,724 registered refugees, and the 43,913 scheduled to be registered, it does not mention those that have fled from Syria but have not chosen to register with the UN for support.

The Turkish government said that there were 148,441 registered Syrian refugees in Turkey, as of Sunday. The UNHCR also reported 167,959 refugees in Jordan; 67,720 in Iraq; and over 13,000 in Egypt.

Thousands of Syrian citizens, forced to leave their homes, are reported monthly, but the numbers of those that do not cross borders or choose to register are difficult to track.

On 18 December, the Palestinian ambassador to Syria had said that over 95 percent of Palestinians in the Yarmouk refugee camp near Damascus had fled under heavy shelling. It was reported that more than 1,000 Palestinians from the camp had arrived at the Lebanese border crossing point that day.

The Palestinian refugee camp had been overtaken by Syrian rebels on 16 December and fighting continues.

This is the price people pay for starting a revolution with no plan or forethought.

Cause we can and will be anywhere we want to be. And if you and your Muslim friends don't like it, go on back to whatever Islamic rat hole you all come from.

I don't know about how anyone else feels, but if I help you leave, you won't be coming back. And I damn sure won't miss you. You will be begging to get out, but your train will have left the building.

Not comfortable with the truth, Eh, Hossam? anytime you people are pointed out not so nice facts about your Islam or Qur'an, you turn to impolite language. That's disgusting, and even more so taken to mind you use it against ladies.

As for Syria, it is their own problem to solve. People are dying and will continue to die because once Assad falls, the Alawis will have their own genocide, and then revenge, and we're exactly at the same point. So let them manage their own issue, as long as they don't cause to much damage to their surrounding countries.
