And the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights documented 5 massacres during September 2018, which left 37 civilian casualties including 13 children and 10 citizen women, where the Russian warplanes as well as the regime’s warplanes carried out 3 massacres which killed 18 citizens including 7 children and 5 citizen women, while a massacre was carried out by the factions claimed the lives of 13 citizens including 6 children and 5 women, while a massacre was carried out after an explosion in the eastern countryside- of Hama, which claimed the lives of 6 citizens.

This death toll which was documented by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights in September 2018 is considered the lowest toll of the monthly casualties in terms of total number of civilians ever since the begging of the Syrian revolution in March 2011, and despite the conferences calling for dialogue and solution, and the UNSC resolution and the unreal truces, the bloodshed continues on the Syrian territory and the killing and fighting continues without peace, and the cease-fire truces are only breaks between the conflicting parties in Syrian, where some parties were winners and others lost influence and control, so, we in the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, reiterates our calls for the international parties to do their utmost efforts to stop the bloodshed of the Syrian people, who faced tyranny and injustice to reach a state of justice, democracy, freedom and equality, and we the Syrian Observatory pledge to continue to monitor and document the massacres, violations, war crimes and crimes against humanity committed against the Syrian people, in addition to the publication  of statistics about them in order to stop the perpetration of these crimes, violations and atrocities against the Syrian people, and to refer the perpetrators of these violations to the concerned courts of the state, so as not to escape their punishment for the crimes they committed against the people who was and still dream of having a state of democracy, freedom, justice and equality for all components of the Syrian people.
