SOHR activists say that unknown assailants opened fire on a member of the Military Intelligence branch on the road between Um Walad and Al-Musifra towns in Daraa countryside, injuring him and then was taken to the hospital.

Meanwhile, unidentified gunmen attacked the headquarters of the 4th Division in the town of Saham al-Golan, west of Daraa, but no casualties have been reported so far.
