Latakia | Jablah municipality’s head found dead in his office

Latakia province: The head of the municipality of Jablah in Latakia countryside was found dead in his office this morning.

The sources said that the municipality’s head committed suicide by shooting himself with a military pistol, for unknown reasons.

On April 6, SOHR activists documented the suicide of a religious Christian displaced from Jisr Al-Shughor countryside to Lattakia city, during prayer at the “Mar George Orthodox Cathedral” in Lattakia.

Local sources confirmed that Father George Hosh shot himself, dying immediately, without knowing the reasons behind his suicide.

It is worth noting that “Hosh” worked as a priest in Haloz village in Jisr Al-Shughor western of Idlib before displacing to Lattakia city, before the control of Islamic factions over the village.
