IED attack | Unidentified gunmen attack vehicle belonging to state security agents, killing one and injuring six others in northern Daraa

Daraa province: SOHR sources have reported that unidentified gunmen targeted, with an IED, an armoured vehicle belonging to the regime’s state security branch on the road between Al-Harah city and Zamreen town in northern Daraa countryside. The attack led to killing a member and injuring six others, and they were taken to the military hospital in Al-Sanamayn city.

 

Similarly, unidentified gunmen blocked two young men in Al-Sanamayn city in northern Daraa countryside, where exchange of fire erupted between the two sides, but no casualties have been reported.

 

It is worth noting that the two young men had worked for an armed group before they struck a reconciliation deal with regime forces in 2018.

 

This comes in light of ongoing security chaos in Daraa province.

 

Since early 2023, the number of attacks documented by SOHR in Daraa province has risen to 268 which left 204 people dead; and they are as follows:

 

  • 63 civilians, including three children and six women.

 

  • 20 men accused of “involving in drug business.”

 

  • 91 regime soldiers, members and collaborators with regime security services.

 

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

 

  • Seven ISIS members.

 

  • Six ex-combatants with settled-status working for regime services and backed militias.

 

  • Two people working for the Lebanese Hezbollah, including a commander.

 

  • One “collaborator” with Iranian-backed militias.

 

  • An ex-fighter in the former “Jabhat Al-Nusra.”
