worse and worse, keep you eyes and our Lord and Personal Saviour Jesus Christ. Jesus will
return to take true believers to heaven.
"6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows." Matthew 24:6-8 KJV
Beirut (AFP) - Syria's devastating war has killed more than 280,000 people, a monitoring group said on Thursday in a new toll for the five-year conflict.The toll of 282,283 includes 81,436 civilians, among them 14,040 children and 9,106 women, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Non-jihadist rebel fighters accounted for 48,568 of those killed, while extremist militants -- including non-Syrians -- numbered 47,095.
The Observatory documented the deaths of 101,662 pro-regime fighters, including 56,609 government soldiers.Another 3,522 of the deaths were unidentified.
The Observatory is based in Britain and depends on a network of sources inside Syria to gather its information on the conflict that erupted in March 2011.
The toll was the first given since a partial truce came into effect between the government and non-jihadist rebels on February 27.Several weeks into the truce, the Observatory said violence -- and daily death tolls -- had dropped dramatically.
But since then clashes have broken out in parts of the country where the ceasefire was meant to have taken hold.The previous toll of 271,138 had been published by the Observatory on February 23.
This is the strength and losses according wikipeda.
