At least 923 civilians killed in October: Syrian Network
(Zaman Al Wasl)- A Syrian human rights watchdog says 923 civilians were killed in October by the Syrian regime, ISIS, Russia and the US-led coalition.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights on November 1 said  398 of the deaths were killed by the Syrian regime, including 398 children and 62 women.

It added that 221 civilians, including 68 children and 36 women, were killed in airstrikes by Russia. 162 more civilians, including 24 children and 16 women, were killed by the Islamic State (Daesh).

Also, 71 people, including 22 children and 15 women, were killed by the U.S.-led international coalition. The armed opposition killed 16 civilians, including 3 children and 4 women. The US-backed Kurdish forces killed 15 civilians, including 7 women.

Russia and Iran support the regime of Bashar al-Assad, while the United States and Turkey back differing rebel groups. 

Syria is embroiled in a six-year civil war that has killed more than 470,000 people and forced an estimated 5 million more to flee across borders to become refugees.
