The Syrian Observatory reported that the conflict in Syria has left 3,746 people dead in 2021 alone including civilians and children.
According to figures compiled by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, 1,505 of those killed were civilians and among those 360 were children.
The figures signified the lowest casualties compared to 2020, in which 6,800 people lost their lives to the long-decade conflicts, while in 2019 it took the lives of 10,000 people.
The Observatory said 297 people were killed in 2021 by landmines and various explosive remnants.
The Landmine Monitor recently said in November that Syria had overtaken Afghanistan as the country with the highest number of recorded casualties from landmines and explosive remnants of war.
Syria’s war is estimated to have killed nearly half a million people and displaced millions since it began with a brutal crackdown of anti-government protests in 2011.
