SNHR documented the extrajudicial killings of 14 civilians, including three children and a woman, by Syrian regime forces and Unidentified parties, on Wednesday, October 20, 2021, with the toll of victims distributed as follows:
Syrian regime forces: 12 civilians, including three children and a woman.
Unidentified parties: two civilians.

SNHR issues this daily brief report of the death toll of Syrian civilians who were killed, against all the tenets of international human rights law and international humanitarian law, by all the dominant parties in Syria. SNHR’s work on these reports has lasted for nine years to date, during which time not one day has passed without civilian victims being killed in Syria. SNHR condemns all operations by any party which result in the deaths of civilians, and confirms that the regime and its allies are responsible for the vast majority- 91 percent – of the killings in the country, with the total death toll of civilian victims documented by SNHR exceeding a quarter of a million victims, although the estimated unofficial death toll is far larger.
Accordingly, SNHR calls on the international community to intervene and protect civilians in Syria by taking all the necessary steps to reach a democratic political transition that will achieve security and justice in Syria.
