Steady decrease in civilian casualties over consecutive months

A trend analysis reveals a steady decrease in both civilian deaths and injuries from October 2022 to February 2024. October 2022 recorded 314 killed and 794 injured, which consistently diminished to 77 killed and 169 injured by mid-February 2024, illustrating a gradual reduction in the scale of violence or improved civilian safety measures.

Significant reduction in the number of killed and injured civilians in the latest month

February 1 to 15, 2024, reported the lowest numbers for both killed and injured civilians with 77 and 169 respectively, when compared to the earlier periods of the conflict. This indicates an ongoing decline in violence or enhanced protective measures for civilians in recent times.

Continued civilian casualties despite ongoing conflict

Despite the observed decrease, the consistent recording of civilian casualties, with 164 killed and 490 injured in January 2024, emphasizes the persistent danger and impact of the conflict on non-combatant populations. The continued casualties highlight the enduring humanitarian challenges in the war zone.

Comparative analysis of casualty figures indicates varying conflict intensities

The variance in monthly casualty figures, from the high of 4,289 killed in March 2022 to a low of 77 killed in February 2024, suggests fluctuating intensities of conflict over the period. This fluctuation is indicative of the changing dynamics on the ground, impacting civilian safety and security.
