Extrajudicial killing against Syrian woman:
In SNHR’s daily documentation of victims, we noticed that the percentage of women victims is high as it is estimated at 9% of the total death toll of civilians. Furthermore, on many days we record the death of about 30 women, although most of murder incidents are caused by the indiscriminate or deliberate bombardment against civilians by using barrel bombs that were dropped from planes, scud missiles and artillery. However, there are hundreds of women who were killed in raids and massacre deliberately.
In our methodology, we never include a victim in our statistics without his name, date and place of death, pictures, videos, and the way of killing.
From the beginning of the uprising until 30/April /2013, we recorded the killing of 7543 women at the hand of pro-Syrian government forces including 2454 girls and 257 infants (under three-year-old). We were able to document only 155 women with picture and how and when they were killed, but the rest of victims are still unidentified.
We should note that the number of women who were killed by sniper shots is 421, where the sniper was fully aware that he was targeting a woman.
Moreover, there are women who were arrested and tortured systematically in brutal manners resulting in the death of 24 women due to torture.
