More Than 73,000 Killed In Syria In 2013

Over 73,000 people were killed in Syria last year, which makes 2013 the “bloodiest year” in the countrysince the outbreak of war in March 2011.

This figure includes “22,436 civilians.”

According to the Associated Press (AP), the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) calculated the number and reports that the overall death toll continues to rise “as renewed regime air strikes in the northern city of Aleppo killed as least five people.”

“More than 130,000 [have] been killed” since the conflict began. 

SOHR believes “the international community” is culpable “in the shedding of the blood of the Syrian people” because of its refusal to intervene in the conflict.

On January 1, SOHR said the Syrian conflict has reached this level because “the international community…failed to take serious action to stop the massacres that have been committed and continue to be committed.”
