The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates that more than 10,000 people may be living in the Daesh-held parts of Dayr al-Zawr.

Russian Federation and Iran support the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, while the United States and Turkey back differing rebel groups.

The number of people killed in September was higher due to increased fighting and "intensified air raids of the global coalition and Russia against jihadist bastions in the north and east of Syria, but also due to increased Russian and regime strikes on rebel-held areas", Abdel Rahman said.
