Syria: Who is responsible for how many deaths?

Since the uprisings in 2011, Syria has become unrecognisable and its population has been forced to flee or endure life in a war zone. On the interactive map below, Middle East Monitor has brought together key information from the Syrian conflict. Using data from organisations deemed experts in their fields, the map includes coalition airstrikes, attacks on medical facilities and medical personal, statistics of those killed and alleged chemical attacks, alongside other information.

Airwars has estimated a much higher civilian casualty rate caused by coalition air strikes. They estimated a minimum of 1,642 civilians killed by Coalition forces.

- Assad Regime: 187,624 people
- Rebel Forces: 3,468 people
- Russian Forces: 2,684 people
- Non-State Forces: 3,890 people
- Coalition Forces: 626 people
- Unknown Forces: 2,523 people

As the situation in Syria has worsened, the urgent medical needs of its people have increased. Unfortunately, medical facilities have also come under attack. According to Physicians for Human Rights, there have been 382 attacks on medical facilities.

- Assad Regime: 293 attacks
- Rebel Forces: 16 attacks
- Russian Forces: 35 attacks
- Non-State Forces: 25 attacks
- Coalition Forces: 1 attack
