One day after being kidnapped | Residents find body of young man in Al-Suwaydaa

Al-Suwaydaa province: SOHR activists have reported that residents have found the body of a civilian shot dead near Sad Julin in Al-Suwaydaa city within regime-held areas, after one day of being kidnapped by unidentified people. However, the identity and motivation of the perpetrators are still unknown.

This comes in light of the ongoing security chaos in different areas of Syria.

These murders left 105 civilians: 20 children, 18 women, and 67 men, dead. The fatalities are distributed regionally as follows:
