Beirut (AFP) - More than 300,000 people have been killed in the Syrian conflict since March 2011, a monitor said in a new toll Tuesday, the first full day of an internationally-brokered truce.

More than 86,000 civilians were among the 301,781 people killed, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The civilian toll includes 15,099 children and 10,018 women, the Britain-based monitoring group said.

Rebel fighters made up 52,359 of those killed.

A total of 59,006 Syrian soldiers have been killed, in addition to 48,048 other pro-government fighters from countries including Iraq, Iran and Lebanon as well as Syria.

It is "interesting" that in 2015, SOHR claimed 450,000 dead,

Somebody should build a religion around Rami Abdulrahman, he just brought 150,000 people back to life.

I would lol if it all wasn't so sad. Too bad the orchestrators of this conflict will likely never taste the justice they deserve.
