Accidental gunfire | Young man killed with gunshot fired by mistake while cleaning his rifle in Al-Suwaidaa countryside

Al-Suwaidaa province: A 25-year-old man was killed with a gunshot fired by mistake, while cleaning his hunting rifle in his house in Al-Suwaidaa city.

 

This coincides with the proliferation of arms across Syria and the absence of laws controlling the possession of weapons by civilians.

 

On November 3, SOHR sources reported that an 11 years-old died while he was playing with his father’s gun, where a fatal bullet was fired by mistake and killed him, in Da’il City in the middle Daraa countryside.
