Violations Documentation Center in Syria

 

Introduction and Citation:
This report covers the period from Sat 13 -12-2014 until Fri 19-12-2014. However, it is worth pointing out the following:
1.    Fatalities of the regime, the Army of National Defense (Shabiha), Lebanese Hizbullah, Iraqi and Iranian Militias are not included in the reported death toll. The report only includes the victims at the hands of the regime in addition to a special list of the victims who fell by the fires of either the Islamic State in Iraq and Sham (ISIS) or the coalition forces' against ISIS if there is any. It doesn't include numbers of victims at the hands of other fighting brigades.
2.    These figures are not final in any way, and they are subject to continuous and periodic scrutiny by center's activists, the data base administrators 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 reveal places of errors and faults, as well as the continuous follow up to identify undistinguished bodies whenever they are identified.
