Syria’s Death Toll

Since March 2011, the Assad regime has slaughtered thousands of Syrians. Sadly, the UN now says it cannot keep track of the number of people killed.

David Kenner, Associate Editor at Foreign Policy noted:

Currently, there are tons of different numbers being thrown around. In mid-December, the UN said the death toll was 5,000. Ten days ago the General Committee of the Syria Revolution said that 6275 people had been killed since March 2011. Another Syrian group says the death toll is above 6,600, while the British Avaaz group says the death toll is above 7,000.

In truth, it is nearly impossible to put an exact number on the number of people killed.

Nonetheless, below is a chart, which outlines the potential death toll based upon a daily average. Note: between today, January 26, and March 15, has been 317 days.

Daily Average Death Toll
15 4,755
18 5,706
20 6,340
23 7,291
25 7,925
30 9,510
35 11,095
40 12,680

Update: Mahir Zeynalov, a reporter for Today’s Zaman, just tweeted:

If this is correct that means that since the Arab League monitors arrived on December 26, ~42-43 people have been killed per day in Syria.
