Democracy Now: United Nations: August Deadliest Month of Syrian Conflict


The United Nations has confirmed August was the deadliest month so far in Syria’s 18 month-long armed conflict between President Bashar al-Assad and armed rebels. U.N. Special Coordinator Robert Serry said the toll continues to grow with no signs of slowing down.

Robert Serry: “The month of August registered the highest number of casualties thus far and this toll is growing. More that two-and-a-half million people, including refugees from Palestine and Iraq, now need assistance and protection inside Syria. As conditions deteriorate we see dangerous implications for Syria’s neighbors.”
