Most Notable Violations of Human Rights in March 2018


As usual with the start of every month, SNHR released eight reports at the start of April 2018, documenting the most notable violations that were perpetrated by the seven main parties to the conflict in Syria in March 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 attacks on vital civilian facilities, most notable massacres, and barrel bombs use.
These monthly reports try also to assess the impact of the de-escalation agreements, such as Ankara and Astana, had, in addition to the local agreements and how successful they were in ending violations.
These reports draw upon the daily documentation efforts during March, 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.
