More than 162,000 people have been killed in Syria since the start of Syrian people uprising in March 2011, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says.

The Britain-based monitoring group, which relies on a network of sources on the ground, said on Monday it had documented the deaths of 162,402 people.

Among them were 53,978 civilians, including 8607 children.

The new toll includes 61,170 regime forces, 37,685 of them from the military, and 23,485 members of a pro-regime paramilitary groups.

The Observatory also documented the deaths of 438 members of Lebanon’s Hezbollah, which is fighting for preserving Bashar Assad regime.

The toll also includes 2891 unidentified people whose deaths the Observatory has confirmed without being able to record their identities.

The last toll from the Observatory, issued at the beginning of April, stood at just over 150,000 people.
