Al-Suwaidaa | Clashes between NDF and local faction leave many injured
Al-Suwaidaa province: SOHR sources have reported clashes between members of National Defence Forces (NDF) and local gunmen of “al-Liwaa al-Suri” party (the Syrian Brigade Party) in al-Harisah village in the eastern countryside of al-Suwaidaa. The clashes left four NDF members injured, while the members of “al-Liwaa al-Suri” managed to take over several pickup vehicles with submachine guns installed over them affiliated to NDF.
In July, NDF command in al-Suwaidaa threatened to attack the headquarters of “al-Liwaa al-Suri” party by fighter jets, after it accused the party that it wanted to create security chaos in south Syria region, particularly the eastern countryside of al-Suwaidaa.
In late July, “al-Liwaa al-Suri” issued a statement, announcing that the party was complied with the civil activities. Fearing of prosecution by regime security services, “al-Liwaa al-Suri” cooperated with a local faction operating in the eastern countryside of al-Suwaidaa under a formation dubbed “Counter Terrorism” faction.
