Syrian activists say more than 100,000 people have been killed since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began in March 2011.
The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights announced its latest count Wednesday, saying the figure included 18,000 rebels and about 40,000 pro-Assad fighters.
The United Nations said earlier this month nearly 93,000 people were confirmed dead, but that the actual number is probably much higher. High end estimates put the rebel dead at 42,000.
Remember this is from a western source and a pro-west source so these numbers will be skewed in favor of the rebels. This is the deadliest conflict on earth right now. In no other place on Earth is fighting heavier and death higher right now. Syria once was as stable as any country in the west. Now it has become Afghanistan and Lebanon in the 1980′s. Various factions fighting the government, fighting each other. The only victims, the ignorant and the innocent. -Mort
