"The six countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) – Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates – have pledged 0 resettlement places. Excluding Germany, the remaining 27 countries in the European Union (EU) have pledged a total of 6,305 places – which amounts to just 0.17% of the number of refugees currently living in the main host countries," the report said.
The human rights group called "for a global resettlement surge to relocate 380,000 Syrian refugees from the main host countries, by the end of 2016".
"This amounts to approximately 10% of the total refugee population in those countries. At least half should be resettled by the end of 2015," Amnesty International stressed in its Friday report.
The Syrian civil war began in 2011, following anti-government uprisings. Syrian authorities are fighting a number of insurgent groups, including Islamic State (IS) extremists. According to estimates by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the Syrian civil war has taken over 300,000 lives.
