Estimates of deaths in the Syrian Civil War, per opposition activist groups, vary between 380,636 and about 585,000.[1] On 23 April 2016, the United Nations and Arab League Envoy to Syria put out an estimate of 400,000 that had died in the war.[2] Based on Syria's pre-war population of 20.8 million from 2011,[3] this represented approximately 2% of Syria's pre-war population.

UNICEF reported that over 500 children had been killed by early February 2012.[4][5] Another 400 children were reportedly arrested and tortured in Syrian prisons.[6][7] Both claims were contested by the Syrian government.[8] The United Nations stated that by the end of April 2014, 8,803 children had been killed,[9] while the Oxford Research Group said that a total of 11,420 children died in the conflict by late November 2013.[10] By early December 2018, the opposition activist group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported the number of children killed in the conflict had risen to 21,949, while at the same time 13,612 women were also killed.[1]

Additionally, over 600 detainees and political prisoners had died under torture by the start of 2012.[11] By February 2017, Amnesty International estimated between 5,000 and 13,000 people had been executed in government prisons, and thousands more people are reported to have died due to torture by Syrian authorities.[12]

Weekly deaths over the course of the conflict in Syria (18 March 2011 – 18 October 2013)

All of the following totals include civilians, rebels and government forces:

Source Casualties Time period
Syrian Centre for Policy Research 470,000 killed[13] 15 March 2011 – 11 February 2016
UN and Arab League Envoy to Syria 400,000 killed[2] 15 March 2011 – 23 April 2016
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights 380,636–585,000 killed[1] 15 March 2011 – 31 December 2019

At the start of the war, Al Jazeera journalist Nir Rosen stated that many of the deaths reported daily by activists were in fact armed insurgents falsely presented as civilian deaths, but said that real civilian deaths do occur on a regular basis.[14] Several Middle East analysts, including Sharmine Narwani from the Lebanese Al Akhbar newspaper and the UAE/Saudi Al Arabiya website, also urged caution.[15][16][17]

This was later confirmed when in late May 2012, Rami Abdulrahman of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which is one of the opposition-affiliated groups counting the number of those killed in the uprising, stated that civilians who had taken up arms during the earliest days of the conflict were being counted under the category of "civilians" as they were not army nor army defectors.[18][19][20]

In May 2013, SOHR stated that at least 41,000 of those killed during the conflict were Alawites.[21] By April 2015, reportedly a third of the country's 250,000 Alawites that were of fighting age had been killed.[22] In April 2017, a pro-opposition source claimed 150,000 young Alawites had died.[23]

Death tolls by time periods[]

The following figures were all compiled by the SOHR which is considered an authoritative source on the matter.[24] The figures are only for documented deaths, while the SOHR estimates another 193,000 undocumented deaths had occurred.[1]

Death tolls by provinces[]

According to the Syrian opposition website Syrian Martyrs, the conflict's death toll was 151,888 up to 30 April 2016, which was the time of its last update.[25] The number includes 35,859 rebel combatants but does not include members of the government security forces or pro-government foreign combatants who have died.[26] Early in the conflict, the Syrian Martyrs number of civilian deaths was significantly higher than the ones presented by other organisations, including the UN; among the reasons are that they recorded deaths even when no name is given for the reportedly killed individual and that they collated reports of deaths from more sources.[27]

Between October 2015 and December 2017, it was reported that 150–200 Russian security contractors had been killed.[48][49] According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, 264 Russian soldiers and mercenaries were killed until the end of 2019.[50]

In addition, 1,000 civilian government officials have also been killed.[51]

Anti-government forces[]

Due to the main opposition monitor SOHR's policy early in the conflict of counting rebel fighters that were not defectors as civilians,[18][19][20][52] a comprehensive number of rebels killed in the conflict, thus far, has not been ascertained. In late November 2012, SOHR estimated that at least 10,000 rebels had been killed, but noted the possibility of the figure being higher because the rebels, like the government, were lying about how many of their forces had died to make it look like they were winning.[53] In March 2013, SOHR stated that the actual number of killed rebels and government forces could be double the number they were already able to document.[54]

Anti-government combatants Casualties
TOTAL 134,477–180,477 killed[1][31]
ISIL 37,707 killed
SDF (Kurdish YPG/YPJ) 12,111–13,588 killed[55][56][1]

There have been 65,395 foreign rebel, ISIL and SDF fighters,[1] at least 316 anti-government suicide bombers[57][58][59][60][61][62] and 246 rebel child soldiers[63][64] that have been killed in the conflict. Additionally, 73 foreign pro-Kurdish fighters died.[65]

Foreign air-strike casualties[]

The SOHR considers the following figures on ISIL, al-Nusra and other rebel fatalities to be higher due to the groups efforts to hide their losses.

According to SOHR, Russian airstrikes in Syria killed about 19,274 people, of whom 5,244 were ISIL fighters, 5,603 militants from the Al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front and other rebel forces, 8,427 civilians and three Turkish soldiers.

Medical workers killed[]

Killings of medical workers since the start of the Syrian Civil War, according to a PHR summary[212]

  Attacks by government forces (95.5%)
  ISIL or rebel groups (2.5%)
  Kurdish forces (0.1%)
  Unknown forces (1.9%)

A February 2015 joint report by the Center for Public Health and Human Rights of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Syrian American Medical Society asserted that "Syria is the most dangerous place in the world to be a doctor".[213] Roughly half (an estimated 15,000)[214] of Syrian doctors fled the country.[215] The government passed a law in 2012 making it illegal to render medical aid to anyone suspected to be an opposition member and Amnesty International found that doctors and medical staff also took part in torture of patients.[214]

Physicians for Human Rights has been tracking the medical personnel deaths in Syria, though they state that "these numbers are conservative given the difficulties in reporting during a war." As of the end of September 2015, the number of medical workers killed in the Syrian civil war totaled 679.[216] In March 2017, the number of killed medical personnel was updated to more than 800. 723 of these deaths were attributable to the Syrian government, while 72 were killed by ISIL or rebel groups, one by Kurdish forces, and 13 by unidentified forces.[217]

Médecins Sans Frontières has reported that suppliers in Syria refuse to sell essential medical supplies such as gauze and surgical threads to doctors due to government intimidation, with this being a particular problem for besieged areas.[214]
