The Syrian Human Rights Committee (SHRC) has documented 7 massacres in Syria during March 2020, the lowest monthly number of massacres since October 2019.
The drop in massacres this month came after a ceasefire reached between Russia and Turkey on the fifth of March.
Idlib topped the rest of the provinces, for the fifth month in a row, in the number of massacres, which reached 3 massacres, followed by Daraa and Aleppo with two massacres each.
It is noted that this month the massacres returned to Daraa governorate, for the first time since July 2018, when settlements were reached between the armed factions and the Russian forces. These massacres came against the backdrop of clashes in a number of Daraa regions during this month between the factions and the regime forces.
The Syrian regime forces topped the list of perpetrators of massacres this month, with 3 massacres, followed by Russian forces with two massacres, and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) with one massacre, and it was not known who was responsible for committing one massacre.
