Syria is said to be the most bombed place on the planet. So far the hostilities in Syria have resulted in over half its population fleeing their homes. Out of a total population of 22.4 million there are 4 million refugees registered with the UN and around 7.6 million internally displaced persons. Over 250,000 people have been killed, including 116,000 children.*
Obviously there is a direct link between war and the surge in the number of refugees fleeing conflict areas. Is the British government’s policy of yet more bombing and allowing few refugees in acceptable?
