Effects of the War- People's homes have been destroyed due to the government and rebels' firearms, throwable, explosives, and other destructive methods. Five years since the start of the conflict, over 450,000 Syrians have been killed in the fighting, more than a million injured and over 12 million Syrians have been removed from their homes. As of May 2016 it's assumed 400,000 people were killed in the conflict, more than 4 million had fled the country, and 7.6 million had been kicked out of their homes but were still living in Syria. The fighting was sometimes spilled over from Syria into Lebanon, contributing to the country's political polarization.
