Assad regime's militias shelled Deir-ez-Zor countryside on Friday (April 3), killing a civilian and causing material damage, local social media reported.

Assad artillery shells targeted Maadan Atiq village, killing a child, Deir-ez-Zor 24 reported.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) said that 226,247 civilians, including 29,257 children and 16,021 women were killed since March 2011, with 91.36 percent of this total killed at the hands of the Assad-Russian alliance militias, adding that the disproportionately high percentage of the death toll among children and women, who comprise 18 percent of all victims, is another indicator that the Assad-Russian militias are deliberately targeting civilians.

The report notes that approximately 15.2 million people have been forcibly displaced since March 2011, of whom nine million have been displaced inside Syria, while nearly 6.2 million have been displaced outside Syria.
