Assassination in Daraa | Commander killed in armed attack in countryside
Daraa Governorate – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
SOHR say that a commander of the Central Daraa Committee died of his injuries sustained today as a result of an ambush near the conserves factory, north of the town of Al-Muzayrip in western countryside of Daraa.
Hours earlier, the Syrian Observatory had monitored an assassination attempt on the commander with two of his companions. The attack left all of them injured, after unknown assailants opened fire 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 313 persons, 77 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”.
