At Least 30 Attacks on Vital Facilities in February 2014


I. Executive Summary:
In February 2014, the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) documented at least 30 attacks on vital facilities, distributed according to the perpetrator party as follows:
A. Government forces: 26
B. Parties that SNHR was unable to identify: Four
The most notable vital facilities targeted in February:
13 places of worship, Six school, three medical facilities, one ambulance, two markets, one power station/energy source, and one refugee camp.
In this report, the SNHR sheds light on the attacks on vital facilities that the network was able to document for this period. We emphasize that the attacks documented account for the bare minimum of attacks actually carried out due to the many practical obstacles encountered in our documentation process.
As a result of its investigations, SNHR confirms that there were no military headquarters in the facilities included in this report, either before or during the attacks. Government forces and other perpetrators must justify their attacks to the United Nations and the Security Council.
