IDLIB, Syria, Thousands of civilians were killed while over a half million others displaced in Syria since September 2014 when the U.S.-led International Coalition forces launched a counter-terrorism campaign, a U.K.-based human rights group on Wednesday.

The report by Syrian Network for Human Rights documents the deaths of 3,035 civilians, including 924 children and 656 women (adult female) at the hands of international coalition forces since the start of their military intervention in Syria until March 2019.

It also revealed that at least 560,000 inhabitants have been forcibly displaced by International Coalition forces’ attacks.

The report showed that 32 percent of the civilian death were caused by coalition attacks in former U.S. president Barak Obama’s terms, and the attacks began to take on a more systematic and chaotic character under President [Donald] Trump’s administration.

The attacks carried out by International Coalition forces during the term of President Obama killed at least 976 civilians, including 194 children, and 294 women, the rights group said.

During the term of President Trump, the report said, the total number of people killed were at least 2,059 civilians, including 730 children and 362 women.

It said the coalition forces also carried out at least five attacks using incendiary munitions.

The report also documented at least 172 attacks on vital civilian facilities, including 25 attacks on schools, 16 attacks on medical facilities, and four attacks on markets.
