The numbers generated by the ongoing conflict in Syria are truly shocking. This Saturday, 9 December, will be the 1000th day of the conflict in Syria. In that time, over 100,000 people have lost their lives. More than 2 million Syrians have fled. The killing must stop. Time for a #ceasefire and the Geneva II peace talks. http://oxf.am/wTp
