Daraa Governorate – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has documented the killing of three former opposition fighters, who joined the Syrian regime’s Military Security, after striking a reconciliation deal with the regime, after being shot by unidentified gunmen inside the security square area in al-Sabil neighbourhood in Daraa.
This brings the number of attacks and assassination attempts in various forms and methods by detonating IEDs, landmines, booby-trapped vehicles and shootings from last June to date, to more than 734 attacks.
While the number of those who killed and died in the same period has risen to 485 persons, 135 of whom are civilians, including 12 women and 15 children, in addition to 213 regime soldiers, loyalists and collaborators with regime security services.
89 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 23 members of Syrian militias affiliated to Lebanese “Hezbollah” and Iranian forces, in addition to 22 members of so-called “Fifth Corps”.
