Germany – SMART

In a report, the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) documented the killing of about 689 media workers. The Syria government forces and their allied militias have killed most of the media workers since 2011 until November 2018.

The SNHR is a non-governmental non-partisan, founded in June 2011 that monitors the Syrian Civil War. It is committed to all international criteria and declarations. SNHR aims to document human rights violations in Syria and to defend Syrian human rights in international forums and conferences.

 The SNHR mentioned in the report that the Syrian government forces and their militias are responsible for the killing of 543 media workers. The report also indicated that the Russian troops killed 19 media workers. The Islamic State (IS) was responsible for killing 64 and the US-led Coalition is responsible for killing one media worker, according to the same report. The SNHR said that armed factions killed 25, while other parties killed 28.

The report entitled, "No one was held accountable," documented about 1131 arresting and kidnapping incidents against media workers, while about 418 are still forcibly absent or missing since 2011.  

The SNHR said that the killed media workers included six women, eight foreign journalists, and three children.

The SNHR also documented the killing and injuries of 89 media workers in Syria during 2017. The Syrian government forces and the IS killed most of them.  

Earlier, the SNHR documented violations against Syrians and foreign persons in Syria, such as arbitrary arrest and field executions, which are considered crimes against humanity.
