Years after having displaced from his village | Civilian shot dead in front of his old house in al-Suwaidaa province
Al-Suwaidaa province: SOHR activists have reported that a civilian from Deir Dama village in al-Suwaidaa countryside was shot dead today by unidentified gunmen, while he was returning to his house in the village which he displaced from years ago, after the village had been raided by Jabhet al-Nusra in 2014.
On October 19, SOHR sources reported that a young man from Kanaker village in the south-west of al-Suwaidaa sustained serious wounds, after being shot by unknown gunmen near the village. The young man resisted the gunmen who were attempting to kidnap him, so the gunmen shot him, and then they dumped him near the national hospital in al-Suwaidaa city.
After this incident, other gunmen stormed a farm on the road to Kanaker, arresting the farm’s guard and another young man who was heading to his work in the “project of vegetables” near Kanaker. Meanwhile, the residents have accused a family in the area of involving in the recent kidnappings as a reaction to the kidnapping of one of its sons on October 9, while he was on his land in Ara town in the south of al-Suwaidaa.
