Most Notable Violations of Human Rights in Syria in December 2017


As usual with the start of every month, SNHR has released eight reports at the start of January 2018, documenting the most notable violations that were perpetrated by the seven main parties to the conflict in Syria in December 2017 – civilian death toll, deaths due to torture, toll of arbitrary arrests, most notable violations against media activists, most notable massacres, most notable violations against medical and civil defense personnel and their respective facilities, barrel bombs use, and most notable incidents of attack on vital civilian facilities.
These monthly reports try to assess the impact the de-escalation agreements, such as Ankara and Astana, had, in addition to the local agreements, and their success in ceasing violations.
These reports draw upon the daily documentation efforts during November, 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.
