Clashes with wanted suspects | Civilian killed and security patrol members injured in Al-Suwaydaa

Al-Suwaydaa province: SOHR activists have documented the death of a man in his 30s, when a security patrol was arresting wanted suspects. Clashes erupted between the suspects and the patrol in Al-Suwaydaa leading to the death of the civilian by sporadic gunshots, and injury of an officer and two patrol members, before the suspects fled to an unknown destination.

Accordingly, SOHR sources have documented 17 murders since early 2022, where domestic violence was behind some murders while motivations behind the others remained unknown. These murders left 17 people dead: five children under the age of eighteen, four women over the age of eighteen and eight men. The fatalities are distributed regionally as follows:
• A young lady in Damascus.
• A child, a little girl and a young man in Rif Dimashq.
• A man and two women in Tartus.
• A baby and two young men in Hama.
• A young woman, a little girl, a baby and two young men in Al-Suwaidaa.
• A man in Deir Ezzor.
• A man in his 30s in Al-Suwaidaa
SOHR would like to point out that the rate of murders committed under diverse reasons and motivations, including retaliation and domestic violence, in regime-controlled areas has been alarmingly increased, and this indicates that more murders are expected to be committed in light of the security vacuum and chaos in these areas.
We, at the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), renew our appeals to the international community to intensify their efforts to reach a political settlement that could potentially put an end to the Syrian conflict and the suffering of Syrian people who have been grappling with chronic crises, including severing security vacuum throughout Syria, during Syria’s protracted war which has been raging for nearly 11 years.
