246 Syrian civilians killed last month: UK-based NGO
At least 246 civilians were killed in war-torn Syria this February, according to a monthly report by a London-based rights watchdog.
At least 54 children and 50 women were among those killed, said the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) report released Friday.
The rights group added that 108 civilians, including 31 children and 17 women, were slain in attacks by the Assad regime.
A U.S.-led coalition, meanwhile, cobbled together in 2014 to fight the Daesh terrorist group, was responsible for the death of 17 Syrian civilians, including four children and four women, according to the report.
The group blamed “unidentified parties” for the death of 77 civilians, while Daesh was held responsible for a further 21 civilian deaths.
