Rampant security chaos | Ex-fighter with settled-status shot dead in eastern Daraa countryside

In the last 24 hours, four people were killed in separate attacks in Daraa

In light of ongoing chaos and insecurity that pervade throughout Daraa, south Syria, SOHR activists have reported that unidentified gunmen shot dead a former member of the opposition factions, who struck “settlement deal” in 2018, in Al-Harak city in the eastern countryside of Daraa.

It is worth noting that this is the fourth attack that occurred in Daraa province in the last 24 hours amid rampant security chaos.

 

Yesterday, SOHR activists reported that three crimes committed in Daraa. These three attacks left three people killed. The details of these attacks are as follows:

The first crime took place when unidentified gunmen shot dead a civilian, who was not affiliated with any military party, in Al-Misifrah town in the eastern countryside of Daraa.

The second crime committed when gunmen attempted to plant an IED in a vehicle of a commander of the Military Intelligence Branch near the government compound in Daraa city, but they were detected by the commander’s escort and clashes erupted between them. This clash left a gunman killed, the other gunman managed to flee and a woman, who was at the scene of the incident, injured.

The third crime occurred when unidentified gunmen shot dead a “Fourth Division” member near Jassim city in the western countryside of Daraa.

 

Since early 2022, the number of attacks in Daraa province has risen to 217, which left 173 people dead; and they are as follows:

• 84 civilians, including two women and four children.

• 70 regime military personnel, “collaborators” with security services and members with settled-status working for regime services and backed militias.

• Ten former fighters who did not join any military formation, after striking reconciliation deals.

• An ex-ISIS member.

• Six unidentified people.

• A Russian-backed militiaman.
