On February 24, an armed group raided a house in Ibtaa town in the central countryside of Daraa, with the aim of arresting a person accused of drug dealing and committing acts of theft, “robbery” and violations against the residents of the town.

After searching for him and not finding him in the house, the gunmen arrested his brother and his nephew, and took them to an unknown destination.
