But ISIS have so far only caused the deaths of 2,686 people not involved in the fighting.

Kremlin orchestrated air strikes are said to have claimed the lives of 514 women and 716 children.

The jihadi’s have reportedly killed 323 women and 368 children according to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, The Times reports.

This week a picture of a young boy in the back of an ambulance following an alleged Russian airstrike captured the world’s imagination.

Omran Daqneesh’s stunned, dust covered and bloodied face brought the human tragedy of the conflict to the front of peoples minds.

He and his family fortunately survived the blast and have now left hospital but three of their neighbours died.

But a spokesman from the Russian Defence ministry denied they were responsible for the destruction Omran was caught up in.

Major General Igor Konashenkov claimed the blast was caused by a terrorist mortar shell not a Russian airstrike.

He also blasted the media’s use of the young boys photo saying: “The cynical use of this tragedy by certain western media outlets as part of hackneyed anti-Russian propaganda is nothing less than a moral crime.”

But some activists have claimed that the airstrikes are strengthening support for ISIS in the region.

Adnan Hadad, an activist for the Syrian opposition said: “With such actions Russia is only strengthening the narrative of Isis by giving the locals no other option but to resort to terrorism.”

News of the death toll emerges as it is revealed that US jets were scrambled to protect American special forces in the country from Syrian air attacks.

The Pentagon said Assad planes were leaving the city of Hassakeh as their fighter planes arrived.

Thousands in that city are said to have fled their homes amid claims the Syrian government is targeting Kurdish districts.

Pentagon spokesman Capt Jeff Davis said Thursday’s mission was the first time coalition aircraft had been scrambled to respond to an incident involving Syrian aircrafts.

The US had no radio contact with the Syrian planes.
