Sweida factions and regime forces repel infiltration attempt by gunmen west of the province
The Syrian Observatory has monitored today clashes with machine guns between regime forces and local factions in Sweida province on one side, and armed groups from Bosra al-Sham on the other. The clashes followed an infiltration attempt by the armed group near the town of Al-Quraya. The gunmen targeted a civilian car, killing one person and injuring two others.
On March 26, the Syrian Observatory monitored clashes with machine guns between local factions in Sweida and members of a regime checkpoint on Al Ain road near the city of Salkhad, south of the province. Four members of local factions were killed, while one regime soldier was killed and others were injured.
The incident led to heightened security tension in Salkhad city and countryside, as well as discontent among Sweida’s people.
