Where is starts!

This genocide starts off in 2011 when their president, Bashar al- Assad, made a brutal approach towards peaceful protests. The use of attack helicopters and tanks were present during attack.

Out of the 200,000 deaths 11,000 of them were children! There was sexual abuse and violence every where in Syria now.

Not only are there those many refugees but there are over 6 million Syrians internally displaced. These numbers are are so big because these killings are so brutal and chemical weapons.
