The war in Syria has claimed more than half a million lives since it began seven years ago, according to British observers.

Most of the dead are civilians killed by the forces of the Syrian government and its allies such as Russia and Iran and terror groups such as Hezbollah.

Extensive use of air power by President Bashar al-Assad and some of his allies has dramatically raised the death toll.
