SNHR’s high standards for documentation are based on collecting direct testimonies from survivors or victims’ families in addition to analyzing and verifying photos, video footages, and some medical records. However, we can’t claim that we’ve documented all the incidents in light of the ban and pursuit by the Syrian regime and other armed groups.
