More than 115,000 people have died in Syria’s ongoing civil war, a monitoring group said Tuesday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that more than 41,000 civilians — including 6,000 children and 4,000 women — have been killed during the two-and-a-half-year conflict, Reuters reports. About 41,000 fighters loyal to the government have died, and rebel fighters make up about 23,000 of the dead.

With 5,000 deaths in September alone, international attempts to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons since last month haven’t slowed the bloodshed.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE are as guilty of this as are China and Russia..Will sensible minds come together and bring an end to these senseless and horrendous acts being carried out against the innocent in Syria?

The next 115,000 deaths will come faster with the delivery of weapons to the rebels by U.S & her NATO allies and Saudi Arabia etc.

I wouldn't call it a civil war, its obvious its a war against terror, Syria is under attack, why don't we just start to think and judge situation with our own ability to judge, instead of just accepting everything the propaganda machine is feeding us

The crude reality is that the war in Syria is not a civil war. It is the world against the Syrian government. Yesterday a Chilean woman was caught assaulting a SAA post, where her husband, a Tunizian, was killed. Fighting a terrorist war against the Syrian government are people from Afghanitan, Iraq, Russia, Chechenya, USA, Germany, Britain, Sweden, Norwegian, Yemen, etc,. And then they accuse the Syrian government of terrorism. Who is fighting for Syria?  The Syrian soldiers.
