Syrian Opposition Death Toll Claim: Thousands Dead, Zero Verifiable Sources

The Syrian opposition says 5,000 have been killed during a nine-month crackdown, with more than 250 civilians killed in two last days alone, calling for UN protection from “acts of genocide.” But researchers say the information is tough to verify.­RT spoke with Julie Levesque from the Center for Research on Globalization, who says the most significant problem with the figures from Syria is that, simply, “we do not know where they come from.I’ve discovered that it mostly comes from one group, which is a local coordination committee in Syria. We do not know who these people are,” she said.We do not know who has been killed, and we do not know who has killed them. There are 17,000 armed men, according to a report from the Institute for Strategic Studies, which is based in London,” the researcher further explained.
