The Death Toll for Eid Al-Fetr


SNHR has documented the killing of 255 people during Eid Al-Fetr divided as follows:
First: Government Forces  
A: Civilians
SNHR has documented the killing of 165 civilians by government forces, among them were 25 children (nine children a day), and 25 women at least. The number of victims who died under torture inside the government’s detention centers was 14. (As average, three people die under torture every day.)
The percentage of women and children victims is 31%; a clear indicator that government forces is deliberately targeting civilians.
B: Rebels
We also documented the killing of 41 rebels by government forces either during clashes or under shelling.
Second: The armed factions affiliated to Al-Qaeda (IS)
A: Civilians
SNHR documented the killing of eight civilians including one child and one lady.
B: Rebels
We also documented the killing of 21 rebels on the hands of IS either during clashes between this group and other rebels or through field executions of prisoners.
Third: Armed opposition
SNHR documented the killing of 11 people by the armed opposition; divided as follows:
A: Civilians: 11 civilians; including three children and three women.
B: Rebels: No cases where rebels were killed on the hands of other rebels were documented.
We also documented nine incidents of killing which we were not able to name the side responsible for them.
We would like to mention that this is the death toll we could document accurately by name, place and time through our members who are distributed in different Syrian governorates. However, there are lots of cases which were out of our reach, especially in the cases of massacres in some towns and villages where the Syrian government usually cuts all connections and surrounds the targeted town or village, which will probably make the actual number of victims higher that the documented number. All of this is because the Syrian government precedents Human Rights organizations from working on its lands.
