WEB Notes: Can you imagine that for a moment? How big is the city or town you live in? There might be a couple hundred thousand people in our general region where I live. It is like everyone in this region being wiped out twice over. This is insanity. Pray for our fellow Christian brothers and sisters in this part of the world and those in harms way else where.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based war monitor, said on Monday about 511,000 people had been killed in the Syrian war since it began seven years ago.

The Observatory, which tracks death tolls using a network of contacts inside Syria, said it had identified more than 350,000 of those killed, and the remainder were cases where it knew deaths had occurred but did not know the victims’ names.

The conflict began after mass protests on March 15 2011, dragging in regional and global powers and forcing millions of people – more than half the pre-war population – to flee their homes.
