Security chaos | Civilian shot dead by “robbery” gang in Homs countryside

Homs province: A civilian was shot dead by a member of a “Robbery” gang on Al-Mushrifah Road, Al-Ghanam Market, north-east of Homs, after they stole the money he had in his possession.
In another incident, a civilian was subjected to the “theft” of his motorbike at Termaalah Junction, north of Homs, where he managed to escape without resistance.
This comes in light of the ongoing security chaos in regime-held areas.
