We in the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates the real number of non-Syrian casualties from the IS, Jabhat al- Nusra, Islamic factions, Jund Al-Aqsa battalion and pro-regime militants is approximately 800 soldiers and fighters more than the documented number because of  reticence about casualties by all parties, the difficulties of reaching to the outback and the difficulties to investigate about those who have died inside the regime or IS  jails.


SOHR demanded US Security Council to move urgently in order to stop the massacres committed against the Syrian people every day, and to issue a binding resolution to refer the file of war crimes and crimes against humanity to specialized international courts in order to punish the murderers of Syrian people and those who work on destroying the infrastructure and social fabric in Syria as well as to help the Syrian people to ensure safe future for them .
