“We continue in our calls to the UN Security Council for urgent action to stop the ongoing murder against the sons of the Syrian people despite the deafness of members to the screams of pain of the Syrian people,” the group appealed in a statement.
ISIL, which has seized and occupies territory in Syria and Iraq, is an offshoot of Al Qaida and has established its administrative system which has implemented its version of Islamic law and justice.
The organization said its reported figures also include combatants and civilians who had tried to flee ISIL or were accused of being spies. Not included were several beheaded foreign journalists, the Observatory’s Rami Abdulrahman said.
Hundreds of people believed captured by ISIL are still missing, he added.
One of the worst massacres was against the Sunni Muslim Sheitaat tribe which had been battling ISIL in eastern Syria. ISIL has killed at least 930 Sheitaat tribespeople, the Observatory said.
