The Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, one of the more accurate chroniclers of the war in Syria, has reported that so far the airstrikes carried by U.S. forces against ISIS have killed over 900 people. Most were militants, though by SOHR’s count, 52 were civilians. Hundreds of thousands overall have died in the fighting.
SOHR documented the death of 910 people since the U.S led coalition started its strikes on Syria in 23/Sep until last night.
Including: 52 civilians ( 8 children , 5 women ), killed by coalition air strikes on oil fields and refineries in al-Hasakah and Der-Ezzor countrysides, al-Raqqa, Around Menbej northeast of Aleppo, and Idlib countryside.
And 72 fighters from Jabhat al-Nusra killed by coalition air strikes on their HQs in the western countryside of Aleppo and the northern countryside of Idlib
785 fighters from the IS most of them were Non-Syrian fighters, were killed by coalition air strikes on their HQs and groupings in Homs, Hama, al-Hasakah, al-Raqqa, Der-Ezzor, and Aleppo.
A fighter from Islamic battalions killed by coalition air strikes on ISIS HQ in Ma’dan in al-Raqqa countryside.
We, in SOHR, believed that the real number of casualties in ISIS is more than our number ,because there is absolute secrecy on casualties and due to the difficulty of access to many areas and villages that have witnessed violent clashes and bombardment.
Worth to mention that the coalition air strikes targeted oil refineries and oil fields in Der-Ezzor, al-Hasakah and al-Raqqa, what led to material damages in these refineries and oil fields.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights expresses its strong condemnation, to the fall of the civilians, as a result of the coalition air strikes, and Calls neutralize civilians areas from the military operations from any party, because the the Syrian people who have lost hundreds of thousands and been displaced in millions, is looking forward to a decent safe life away from Humiliation, detention, and destruction, a life of democracy, justice, freedom and equality.
