The unravelling of the Syrian uprising and its transformation into a conflict in multiple war zones is of catastrophic consequences for Syrian citizens. As of January 2015, the conflict had claimed more than 200 000 lives, another 840 000 had been wounded and more than 85 000 people had been reported missing, the majority assumed to have been captured by government forces at the beginning of the conflict.1 Thousands have also been subjected to extreme torture, mainly by the government and its militias, in what may amount to crimes against humanity.2
