Six Facts About Syria - Video

1- UN says that 100000 Syrians were killed in Syria, which means that 5 Syrians are killed every hour. This is official number as I believe the number is way more than that. Many Syrian sources say that the number reach 250000 people killed since March 2011.

2- If you start reading the names of the Syrians who lost their lives, you will spend 3 days in non stop reading till you read them all.

3- The tragedy forced 7 million Syrians to leave their homes, which means 1 in every 3 Syrians is homeless. These displaced Syrians make a population larger than: Jordan, Libya, Lebanon, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar or Bahrain.

4- In the Jordanian Capital Amman, 1 in every 9 people is a Syrian refugees.

5- Half of the Syrian refugees are children. Only 1 in 10 Syrian children are getting education. This means that 900000 children are without education.

6- Last year, about 45 million tweets used hashtag Syria in Arabic and English. This means that 148 tweets made about Syria in a second.
