The armed conflict in Syria, which started in March 2011, has reportedly claimed more than 220,000 lives up until now. The violence also forced 4 million Syrians to take refuge in neighbouring countries, including Jordan and Lebanon. More than 7.6 million others have been displaced within Syria, according to the United Nations. Islamic State militants control more than a half of Syria's territory. The province of Latakia, which is probably the most safe in modern Syria, accommodates about 1.5 million displaced persons from other parts of the country. About 7000 Syrian internally-displaced refugees are currently living in a football stadium in Latakia. Most of those living at the camp are women and children.
