Hundreds of thousands of Syrians have died over the last seven years during the country's civil war. The number of casualties is uncertain. Millions have fled Syria as refugees, and millions more need humanitarian assistance. The Syrian government has been accused of using chemical weapons against civilians, including an attackearlier this month. On Saturday, the United States, Britain and France launched missiles at a Syrian chemical research center and weapons storage facilities. The U.S. also launched air strikes around this time last year.
