This map presents a situational update of reported protests and violent clashes in cities and towns across the Syrian Arab Republic
as reported between 20th and 26th February 2012, related to the flare-up of violence and the presence of Arab League observers. Also
depicted are the cumulative numbers of reported deaths since March 2011 aggregated by Governorate, and Syrian refugee camps that
have been opened along the border in Turkey and Lebanon. Further, the spatial distribution of the dominant ethnic/religious communities
in the country has been included as background context to the larger social and political uprising occurring within the country. Event

uprising in March 2011 and have not been verified on the ground. It is possible that not all incident locations have been depicted. Please
