The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) said it had recorded no fewer than 33 massacres committed across Syria in November. The massacres claimed the lives of 410 people, half of them children and women.
In a report released on Thursday, Assad forces and their allied foreign militias committed 16 massacres, while Russian forces committed 13 ones. One massacre was committed by the international anti-ISIS coalition forces and three by unidentified groups.
The Network said that the victims included 135 children and 62 women who accounted for 49 per cent of the total number of victims.
According to the report, 254 people, including 87 children and 42 women, were killed by Russian forces. It added that 123 people, including 37 children and 18 women, were killed by the Assad regime forces. Around 28 people, including 10 children and two women were killed in attacks that the rights group said were untraceable. It noted that five people were killed in airstrikes by the international anti-ISIS coalition forces.
The Network has documented violations against Syrian nationals and foreigners in Syria, including arbitrary arrests and summary executions amounting to crimes against humanity parties.
The rights group earlier said that 435 people were killed during the month of October, while 996 civilians were killed during the month of November in massacres committed by Russia and regime forces as well as the international coalition forces.
The Syrian Coalition previously stressed that the Assad regime and Russia’s bombardment of unarmed civilians is aimed at undermining political solution by violating all agreements and carrying on with the killing and criminality. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
