LONDON - 30 December 2017: About 40,000 people including more than 10,000 civilians were killed in Syria during 2017, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on Saturday.

The tally included 2,923 government soldiers and 7,494 militant fighters, mainly from Daesh and al Qaeda terrorist groups and Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, previously known as al-Nusra Front, SOHR was quoted by Al Arabiya Al Hadath news channel.

The dead included 2,109 children and 1,492 women, SOHR added.

Around 212 fighters from Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement, allied with the Syrian government, were also killed in the violence, SOHR pointed out.

The Syrian army advanced on Daesh terrorists who lost control of half of the Syrian territories and still in control of only three percent of the Syrian lands, SOHR further said.
