Five years of bloody civil war has taken its toll on the people of Syria. Barely a week goes by without the violence and terror of this complex conflict making the headlines. What started as a peaceful cry for freedom has descended into a deadly mess, reaching well beyond the borders of Syria.
The impact of the fighting, as ever, is being most brutally felt by civilians. Since the beginning of the Syrian uprising, we have documented a horrific number of war crimes and crimes against humanity, mainly committed by government forces.
