DEATHS: Nearly 30,000 people have died since the Syrian uprising began in March 2011, according to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and other activist groups. At least 48 civilians and 22 regime soldiers were killed Monday, including 16 in Aleppo.
HOMELESS: About 1.5 million Syrians have been displaced inside the country, and about 250,000 have sought refuge in neighboring Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan.
NEEDING AID: The United Nations estimates that 2.5 million Syrians are in need of humanitarian aid. The UN said it needs $350 million from international donors to help them, and only about 40 percent of that has been donated so far after months of appeals.
FOOD: The number of Syrians in need of food has jumped from 250,000 in April to 1.5 million today. The UN World Food Program said it has raised $78 million but needs $60 million more to cover its annual Syria budget. Other international agencies, including the Syrian Red Crescent, also are distributing food and supplies.
FUEL: The parts of the country outside government control have had to rely on smuggled supplies of gasoline and heating oil, which have already tripled in price.
DAMAGE: About 2,000 schools have been damaged, as well as thousands of homes, stores, and factories, according to UN observers.
