Following dispute between them | Woman killed by her brother in Rif Dimashq

Rif Dimashq province: A woman was killed by her brother, as a result of a dispute that broke out between them for unknown reasons in her house in Jaramana in Rif Dimashq. As a result of the dispute, he killed her and burned the house to hide the evidence of the crime, while the regime’s security services were able to arrest him, as he confessed to committing his crime as an “honor crime”.
Murder crimes are increasing dramatically within regime-held areas for various reasons, including the proliferation of weapons, thefts as a result of poor living conditions and vendetta, amid the inability of the regime’s security services to reduce them.
