Since crackdowns on pro-democracy protests led to civil struggle, estimates suggest that almost 100,000 non-government forces have died. Most disturbing, the vast majority-- around 70%-- of those killed were non-fighting civilians, including over 11,000 children. International attention has all but forgotten of Syria with the escalation of the Ukrainian crisis, which is significantly more threatening to European and US interests.

These stats are hard to look at. It's sad that Syria is discussed less and less in mainstream media. I feel this leads people to think that maybe the situation is resolving itself or that there is nothing we can do besides to let it all play out. It seems we are often quite unaware to the extent of deaths and evacuees in Syria. I see one of your articles states that the number of people fleeing Syria is similar to how many fled Rwanda during the genocide, a good perspective on how devastating the situation has become IMO.
