18,000 Killed in less than a Year

How is it possible that only now unimaginable figures like these are being published?

18,000 dead in a year is equivalent to around 50 a day- so why don’t the UN and world powers release figures such as these after 6 months or 1 month of violence, what’s the use of waiting a year after 18,000 people have been murdered?

Earlier awareness and understanding of the atrocities being carried out by ISIS surely means that our efforts to tackle the group maybe made more ruthless and effective?

Perhaps evidence like this would make people more sympathetic and tolerant towards migrants who are fleeing the region and seeking refuge in Europe and beyond?
