Daraa governorate – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
SOHR sources say that a commander of the Central Daraa Committee was injured along with two others, in an ambush near the conserves factory, north of the town of Al-Muzayrip in western countryside of Daraa, after unknown assailants opened fire with their machine guns on them.
This brings the number of attacks and assassination attempts in various forms and methods by detonating IEDs, mines, booby-trapped vehicles and shootings from past June to date, to more than 479 attacks.
While the number of those who killed and died in the same period has risen to 312 persons, 76 of whom are civilians, including seven women and seven children, in addition to 164 regime soldiers, loyalists and collaborators with regime security services.
49 members of opposition factions were also killed, those who made “settlements and reconciliations” with the regime and became members of regime security services, including former leaders, and 17 members of Syrian militias affiliated to Lebanese “Hezbollah” and Iranian forces, in addition to six members of so-called “Fifth Corps”.
