We in the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates the real number of non-Syrian casualties from the IS, Al-Nusra Front, Islamic factions, Jund Al-Aqsa battalion and pro-regime militants is approximately 1000 soldiers and fighters more than the documented number because; first there are a lot of missing from the regime forces in the province of al Raqqa and the IS reticence about casualties due to the regime’s bombardment and aerial strikes on its posts, as well as the reticence of some Islamist and rebels’ battalions, al Nusra Front and YPG about their casualties too, and second the difficulties of reaching to the outback and the difficulties to investigate about those who have died inside the regime and IS jails. 


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is going to monitor and document all the massacres, crimes of war and crimes against humanity which are committed against the Syrian people. In addition to, we are going to publish statistics about casualties in order to reach to that day when the conscience of international community wake up and see the cruel crimes committed against our people in Syria.
