Most Notable Violations of Human Rights in Syria in February 2018


As usual with the start of every month, SNHR released eight reports at the start of March 2018, documenting the most notable violations that were perpetrated by the seven main parties to the conflict in Syria in February 2018 – civilian death toll, deaths due to torture, toll of arbitrary arrests, most notable violations against media workers, most notable violations against medical and civil defense personnel and their respective facilities, most notable massacres, most notable attacks on vital civilian facilities, and barrel bombs use
These monthly reports try also to assess the impact the de-escalation agreements, such as Ankara and Astana, had, in addition to the local agreements and Security Council Resolution 2401 which was adopted on the evening of February 24, and how successful they were in ceasing violations.
These reports draw upon the daily documentation efforts during February, where SNHR, through its scattered members throughout the Syrian region, monitors violations by all of the parties to the conflict, and publishes most notable news, before releasing a preliminary death toll at the end of each day. For more information, please see our documentation and archiving methodology.
