The Syrian Civil War has been a uniquely significant international event ever since its inception in 2011. The death toll as recorded and presented by the Syrian Centre for Policy Research approximately totalled at 470,000 as a result of on- going conflict till February 2016. The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has claimed that the conflict has created a critical humanitarian crisis, internally displacing 6.1 million people. An additional 4.8 million Syrians have fled abroad to seek asylum. The Syrian Network for Human Rights has also reported that more than 117,000 Syrians have been detained or have disappeared since the start of the conflict. These detention facilities, most of which are administered by government forces, have seen thousands of detainees die after torture and ill-treatment. In addition, the introduction of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) to the conflict in 2013 added several unbounded violations, including a blockade on humanitarian aid from reaching civilians in ISIS-controlled territory, heedless artillery attacks on areas with civilians, and the use of child soldiers, amongst others (Human Rights Watch, 2016).
