Wednesday: Highest death toll of fighters in Syrian conflict
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Wednesday (February 26th) produced the highest death toll among opposition fighters, jihadists and loyalists since the start of the Syrian conflict nearly three years ago, AFP reported.
The group, which relies on activists and doctors on the ground for its information, said 326 fighters were killed nationwide on Wednesday.
They included 242 opposition fighters, among them at least 33 jihadists.
Another 84 were loyalists, including 37 paramilitaries and non-Syrian fighters.
Syria’s war has killed more than 140,000 people, the Observatory says, and forced millions more to flee their homes.
