Over 150,000 people have lost their lives since the March 2011 outbreak of the devastating civil war in Syria, according to new figures.
The London based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), which closely monitors the conflict using a network of activists and medical staff in Syria, has documented the deaths of 150,344 people.
More than a third of those killed in Syria by shellfire, air strikes and bullets are civilians, the rights group said.
Now in its third year, the war, which continues, unabated, has ravaged entire cities, leaving whole civilian neighbourhoods flattened by shell fire and air strikes.
These include home-made 'barrel bombs', which when dropped from the air carve out craters several metres deep.

The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. -Isaiah 17
“...taken away from being a city...” => That’s an interesting choice of words. Does it decend into Samoli like warlord-ism? Dirty bomb? Under what circumstance would a modern city be abandoned? Damascus is the oldest continuously occupied city, it hasn’t happend yet.
