What's the actual human cost of the war in Syria? | Inside Story
Al Jazeera, 13 Jan 2021
Half a million dead, 12 million displaced, during 10 years of fighting.
A harsh winter and coronavirus, are adding to the misery and the death toll.
What started as a peaceful protest, the war in Syria is now heading into its 11th year, and there's no real end in sight.
The country's been torn into rival areas controlled by different groups, backed by regional or international players.
And it's now facing a surge in COVID-19 cases, an economic crisis and U.S. sanctions targeting the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
