Gratitude and Indication:      

     As the Syrian Revolution reaches its third year, martyrs of civilians, defected soldiers, and enrollees in the FSA, are still falling on a daily basis.
    VDC which has been working since the beginning of the revolution on monitoring and documenting all violations and crimes by the regime presents its report about Dignity Revolution martyrs of August 2013 covering the period from 1st till 31th August 2013.

Pointing out the following:

  1. Regime's fatalities are not included in the reported death toll.
  2. These figures are not final in any way, and they are subject to continuous and periodic scrutiny by center's activists and the field documentation team
  3. Figures may differ between reports even within the same district, and this can be referred to the territorial audit that would reveals places of errors and faults, as well as the continuous follow up to identify undistinguished martyrs whenever they are identified.

     VDC thanks all field activists who are working hard to document the martyrs and complete their data by giving us data and correcting other.
