354 Civilians Killed In Syria In May 2018
A total of 408 civilians were killed in Syria in April 2018, including 88 children and 44 women according to the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR). Over half of the death tolls were at the hands of the Syria-Russian alliance, with a total death toll of 223.
There was a significant drop in death tolls during April after the Syrian regime gained control of Eastern Ghouta and other areas that previously saw the greatest amount of fighting. The SNHR also recorded a significant number of chemical attacks in Eastern Ghouta, resulting in 41 civilian deaths.
Damascus and Homs saw a fair amount of fighting this month. There was also a noticeable rise in bombings this month, where most of them were recorded in the Idlib governorate.
A majority of death tolls were at the hands of the Syrian Regime, with a total death toll of 212 civilians, including 43 kids and 11 women. The second largest death tolls were at the hands of other parties, with a total of 129 civilian deaths including 36 kids and 19 women.
At this point in 2018, a total of 3,812 civilians have been killed. Roughly 78% of the civilian causalities in 2018 have been at the hands of the Syria and their allies.
