Damascus Countryside – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
SOHR sources say that unidentified gunmen assassinated a member of the “National Defense” in the city of Al-Kiswa in western Ghouta in Damascus countryside, by shooting him in a street in the city, killing him instantly.
On November 20, 2020, SOHR sources reported that an IED exploded in a vehicle carrying a senior commander of the regime-backed “National Defense Forces” (NDF) in Harasta city in eastern Ghouta. According to SOHR sources, the explosion injured the commander seriously, and he was taken later to a hospital in the capital, Damascus.
It is worth noting that the commander hails from Harasta city in Rif Dimashq, and he had handed over a large number of young people from the city, who were fighters in opposition factions, to regime security services. Moreover, the attacked commander had close relations with prominent drug dealers affiliated to the 4th Division, headed by Maher Al-Assad, the Syrian-regime president’s brother.
