Despite Russia’s claims, it is our provisional view at Airwars that to April 30th 2016 only, between 2,210 and 2,984 civilian non-combatants are likely to have been killed in 423 Syrian incidents where there is fair reporting publicly available of an event – and where Russian strikes appear to have taken place in the near vicinity on that date.
Indeed, more civilians appear to have been killed by Russia in the seven months to April 30th 2016 than from all credibly-reported Coalition civilian fatality events since August 2014.
As well as inflicting excessive civilian casualties, Russia is credibly reported to have extensively targeted civilian infrastructure in Syria – with water treatment plants, bakeries, food distribution depots and aid convoys all struck.
Civilian neighbourhoods were often systematically targeted across rebel areas.
For reference we also include the latest aggregated Russian civilian fatality estimates from the leading Syrian casualty recorders.
Because of wide variations in the quality of casualty recording, Airwars uses a grading system for events alleging non-combatant or ‘friendly fire’ deaths from Russian and Coalition airstrikes.
Claims are drawn from Syrian monitoring groups; from media and social media sites; from militant and rebel groups; and via local and international NGOs and news organisations.
