"From the start of the conflict in mid-April 2014 up to 15 May 2017, at least 10,090 people, including 2,777 civilians, have been killed, and at least 23,966 injured. This is a conservative estimate based on available data, and the actual figures are likely to be higher," the report said.
According to the OHCHR, over 1.6 million people have fled their homes and become internally displaced as a result of the ongoing violence.
