The UN estimates that 4 million Syrians inside of Syria are also in need of assistance – nearly double previous estimates.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that March was the deadliest month of the conflict, with more than 6,000 killed.
More than 1.3 million refugees have been registered or are awaiting registration in neighboring countries. But the true figure is likely much higher, since many people choose not to register. In February, up to 8,000 Syrians were fleeing their country every day – compared to around 3,000 a day in December. The average for March 2013 was 7,000/day across the region.
