LEBANON (CNN) - The United Nations says roughly half of all Syrians have now been forced to abandon their homes.
And one-in-eight are seeking safety across the border.
According to new figures, a staggering 3 million people are now refugees.
They have fled Syria and its brutal three-year civil war.
The U.N. says before things can improve the world must take action.
An additional 6.5 million are believed to be displaced within the war-torn nation, the U.N. said.
That means almost half of all Syrians have been forced to leave their homes amid the country's civil war, the U.N. said.
