Daraa Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: SOHR activists have documented a spike in the number of casualties following the attack which targeted a group of “Daraa Central Committee” in Al-Muzayrib town in the western countryside of Daraa in the past few hours.


Three people were killed, including a commander, while three others sustained injuries in an ambush by unknown gunmen near the canned food factory in the town. Meanwhile, tension is growing in the area with “Daraa Central Committee”, which comprises ex-fighters of opposition factions, being on high alert.
