We would like to indicate that this is what we were able to document and verify by full name, time, and place, in all the Syrian provinces, we also like to indicate that there are many cases that we couldn’t document, especially in the massacres incidents and sieges on towns and villages, and cutting off communication by the government forces repeatedly in every time, which promote a rise in the actual number of victims, and it’s all due to the Syrian government banning any human rights organization to work on its lands.
