Security vacuum | Unknown gunmen shot civilian dead in northern Daraa

Daraa province: SOHR activists have documented the death of a civilian after being shot dead by unknown gunmen on an off-road in the south of Jasim city in northern Daraa. It is worth noting that the victim was a former opposition fighter from Inkhil city in the northern countryside of Daraa, and he never involved in military actions, after he had struck a reconciliation deal in 2018.


Accordingly, the number of people who were killed across Daraa province since the start of the recent agreements has risen to 85. The fatalities were distributed as follows:


  • 45 civilians, including two child and two women, some of them were former fighter and gave up fighting after striking reconciliation deals in 2018.


  • 36 regime soldiers, members of the Russian-backed 5th Corps and regime “collaborators”.


  • Four local gunmen of anti-reconciliation groups.


Since the beginning of the security chaos in Daraa in early June 2019, Syrian Observatory activists have documented more than 1,265 attacks and assassination attempts by gunfire and detonations of IEDs, motorcycle-bombs and car-bombs. These attacks and assassinations claimed the lives of 926 persons, categorised as follows:


  • Four local gunmen of anti-reconciliation groups.


  • 292 civilians, including 16 women and 26 children


  • 411 regime soldiers, loyalists and collaborators with regime security services.


  • 156 fighters of factions that struck “reconciliation and settlements” deals with the regime and became in the ranks of regime’s security branches, including former commanders.


  • 27 Syrian militiamen affiliated to the Lebanese Hezbollah and Iranian forces.


  • 36 members of the so-called 5th Corps which was established by Russia.
