The United Nations notes that most civilian casualties were caused by the use of “wide impact area” explosive weapons, through heavy artillery, the use of rocket platforms, as well as air strikes.

The UN points out that the real figures “are considerably higher, especially in the territory controlled by the Government and especially in recent days”, due to the lack of information from some places where intense hostilities have occurred and many details of casualties ” are yet to be verified.”
