267 White Helmets volunteers have been killed in Syria since 2011, Raed Saleh, the head of the White Helmets told Orient TV in July.

Many of them were killed in "double tap strikes", struck as they attempted to rescue civilians from bombed-out buildings. 

The White Helmets or the Civil Defence volunteers are the first respondents to the attacks conducted by Assad regime and Russian warplanes.
