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, al- Ummah Brigade, the Islamic Turkestan Party, al- Battar Battalion, Jaysh al- Muhajereen and al- Ansar, Jund al-Sham, rebel battalions, regular forces and pro-regime militants to be approximately at 90000 more than the documented number due to the extreme discretion by all sides on the human losses caused by the conflict and due to the difficulty of communication in Syria.


On the other hand, there are about 2 million were wounded and suffered from permanent disabilities, while more than 11 million have been displaces, as well as the infrastructure and properties have been destroyed.


SOHR is not going to stop to calls upon the members of the UN Security Council to issue a binding resolution that prohibits targeting the civilians in Syria, where massacres committed against them every day under the nose of the international community which do not make any step to stop the ongoing violations committed against the Syrian people who dream of establishing the state of democracy, justice, freedom and equality.
