GENEVA (Sputnik) According to UNHCR, one Syrian refugee out of 10 is in need of resettlement or other kinds of acceptance to the third countries.

"That is 480,000 people – a relatively small number, compared with the millions being hosted by Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan," a statement published on the UN website quoted the secretary-general as saying.

According to the UN refugee agency, the violent armed conflict in Syria has killed more than 260,000 people and forced about 4.8 million to flee the country. Over 13.5 million Syrians are in need of humanitarian aid.
