Ongoing security chaos in regime-held areas | Child found dead in Homs

Homs province: The body of a child was found in a bag in al-Haswiyah area in Homs, in central Syria, near a regime security checkpoint, while local sources have said that the child was killed by regime members for unknown reasons.

This incident comes in light of security chaos in regime-held areas. As regime authorities are still unable to deal with chronic crises such as economic hardship, lack of job opportunities, inflation, acute shortage of fuel and bread, poor transportation service and electricity blackouts, illicit pills and “hashish” have become readily available and are sold in public in areas under the control of the Syrian regime and its proxy militias, Damascus in particular.

Residents in Damascus have been concerned over this phenomenon, the selling of narcotics in public, as it has become so easy for their sons to get Captagon and hash, with such substances being readily available in stalls selling tobacco, cigarettes and coffee.
