Syria Civil War Death Toll Reaches 60,000

Ad Feedback

The United Nations estimates that more than 60,000 people have been killed in the Syrian civil war, which is much higher than recent estimates by anti-regime activists.

The fighting between rebel forces and the government regime of President Bashar Assad began in March of 2011. In the summer of that year, about 1,000 were killed each month.

This past summer, that number rose to 5,000 a month.

The U.N. Human Rights Commissioner called the growing number of dead, "truly shocking."

Even so, the Syrian government is carrying out more deadly air strikes this week.
