We include locations, dates and reported casualty numbers, as well as the names of victims where known. Also cross-referenced are any known US or allied airstrikes or artillery strikes in the vicinity – and any Coalition response to a reported incident.

We also collate reports from regionally-focused monitoring groups which can include:
Syrian Network for Human Rights
