According to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, "crimes of historic proportions" were being committed in the city during the 2016 Syrian government offensive. Not only were hundreds of thousands of residents displaced by the fighting, an estimated 31,000 people were killed as a result.

Many of those casualties were civilians and children who had no where else to run when the fighting broke out.
