3.8 million refugees from Syria (95 percent) are found in the following five countries. Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt:
Lebanon is host to 1.1 million refugees registered with UNHCR, which amounts to about 26 percent of the country's population
Jordan hosts 618,615 registered refugees, which amounts to 9.8 percent of the population.
Turkey is hosting 1.6 million refugees, which amounts to 2.4 percent of the population.
Iraq hosts 225,373 registered refugees, which amounts to 0.67 percent of the population.
Egypt has 142,543 registered refugees, which amounts to 0.17 percent of the population.
In Syria, about 190,000 people have been killed and 10.8 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance inside the country.
More than 10 million Syrians, or 45 percent of the country's population have been displaced.
Of these, 6.5 million are displaced within Syria and about 4 million have sought refuge in other countries.
A total of 63,170 resettlement places have been offered globally since the crisis in Syria began, which only represents only 1.7 percent of the total number of refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt and Turkey.
378,684 people in the five host countries - or ten percent are in need of resettlement (permanent residence), according to UNHCR.
Amnesty International calls for at least five percent of refugees to be resettled from the 5 host countries in late 2015, and a further five per cent by the end of 2016 (this amounts to 380.0000 people).
The six wealthy Gulf countries - Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain - have offered to receive exactly zero Syrian refugees.
It could of course be because these countries are already islamized.
Other high-income countries, including Russia, Japan, Singapore and South Korea have also offered to receive exactly zero percent of the Syrian refugees.
It could of course be because they refuse to drag the conflict into their own countries.
