Ramadan Death Toll: Syria

(Syria) Due to the sporadic reporting from inside Syria it is hard to put a finger on the total number of people who have died in the internecine conflict which is full flow within the country. Rather than guess, I am simply going to report the figures as reported by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights . As of today they report that at least 2,014 people, mostly combatants, have been killed in Syria's civil war since the Islamic holy month of Ramadan began on July 9th. Minus the 80 deaths inside Syria  we have reported so far and we come to a figure of 1934. Of course that figure is at the lower end of the scale and no doubt hundreds more poor people have perished this past fortnight.

Ramadan death toll is now at 2697
