Old vendetta | Civilian kills his brother in Al-Suwaydaa countryside

Al-Suwaydaa province: SOHR activists have monitored a new murder within regime-held areas, where a man in his 60s was shot dead by his brother in Al-Mazraa town in Al-Suwaydaa countryside, due to an old vendetta.

This comes in light of the increasing crime rate in different areas of Syria.

The Syrian Observatory has documented 110 murders in regime-controlled areas since early 2022, where domestic violence and armed robbery were behind some of these murders, while motivations behind the others remained unknown. These murders left 118 civilians: 21 children, 21 women and 76 men, dead. The fatalities are distributed regionally as follows:

• Al-Suwaidaa: 31 civilians: three children, including an infant, three women and 25 men.
