Introduction and Citation:
This report covers the period from Sat 1-11-2014 until Fri 7-11-2014. 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 includes the number of
victims on the hands of the regime and the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) and coalition
forces against ISIS. It doesn’t include numbers of victims on 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 martyrs whenever they are identified.
