Government forces killed no less than 121 victims in Douma city alone since the beginning of the indiscriminate killing campaign on 5 February. The victims are divided as follows:
Civilians: 101 victims including 19 children and 20 women
Rebels: 20 rebels
These statistics indicate that there is a systematic policy to kill civilians as the percentage of civilian victims amounted to 83% of the total number of victims while the percentage of rebel victims is 17%.. Also, the percentage of women and children victims is 32% which is a notably high percentage that is unprecedented even in World War II.
The crime of extrajudicial killing can be classified as a crime against humanity, and most of the crimes deliberately targeted civilian residents.
