SYRIA - LEBANON - Victims, refugees, devastation: the math of Syria's war and its tragic repercussions for Lebanon [AN]


In three years, the revolt against the Assad regime has left 150,000 dead (51,000 civilians, including nearly 8,000 children), forcing 2.6 million Syrians to find refuge abroad and 6.5 million as internally displaced people. The country’s GDP has dropped by 45 per cent, its currency down by 80 per cent. With more than a million Syrians in Lebanon, the UN appeals for help to assist Beirut handle the emergency.
