As the Syrian conflict enters its seventh year, more than 465,000 Syrians have been killed in the fighting, more than a million injured and over 12 million Syrians – half the country’s prewar population – have been displaced from their homes, says an Al Jazeera Report.

Deaths in Syria are reported through statistics where killings in other parts of the western world, are always reported with faces and identities.
