The Monthly Statistical Report on the Dignity
Revolution's Martyrs

Violation Documentation Center in Syria

April 2014






www.vdc-sy.info editor@vdc-sy.info
Gratitude and Indication:
As the Syrian Revolution enters its 37
th
month and enters its fourth year, martyrs of civilians,
defected soldiers, and enrollees in the FSA, are still falling on a daily basis. That coincided with
a remarkable escalation on part of the regime forces using the fiercest and deadliest types of
weapons including internationally banned weapons such as chemical weapons, poisonous gases
and incendiary missiles, in addition to resorting to a policy of systematic shelling of cities and
specific areas, drawing on the support of external forces whose direct involvement in fighting
alongside the regime forces has been recently proven, in an attempt to change the demographic
features of those cities and regions.
Moreover, the regime has been following a systematic policy of besieging and preventing the
entry of food to many of the areas that are not controlled by the military forces of the regime.
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 April 2014 covering the period from 1
st
till 30
th
April 2014.
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.
Center for Documentation of Violations in Syria deeply thanks all field activists who are
doing a tremendous job in order to document the martyrs and complete their data, and thanks all
our readers that collaborated with the center, in addition to the families of the victims who
showed peerless response with (Watheq\Document it Campaign) - which has been started in a
number of Syrian governorates and regions- by providing us with some data, and correcting
another.
