SYRIA REFUGEE CRISIS INFOGRAPHIC: The Syria refugee crisis is the worst humanitarian disaster of this century, but no one is talking about it. Over 12 million people have been affected. Half of the population of Syria has left their homes.
War in Syria This isn’t just “War in Syria”. This is the mass exodus of people from Yarmouk, a Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus that has been under siege by the Assad government and military since 2013. Yarmouk, where ISIS is now trying to make theirs. That is the victim of barrel bombs launched by a brutal regime. Fuck you and your war porn.

In March 2011, thousands of Syrians took to the streets to protest against the regime of President Bashar Assad. More than to years later, the country has descended into civil war, leaving at least 100,000 people dead and forcing more than 2 million to flee their homeland.
