By mistake | Civilian shot de*ad by a worker in Idlib City

Idlib province: A civilian was shot dead by mistake with a gun that was held by a “worker”, while cleaning the gun in Idlib province.

This comes in light of ongoing security chaos in HTS-held area.

Since early 2024, SOHR has documented 26 incidents of security disorder in areas controlled by HTS and opposition factions in Idlib city and surrounding villages. These incidents left 19 people dead and 40 others injured. The fatalities are distributed as follows:

• 17 civilians, including three women.

• A member of the Turkistan Islamic Party.

• A member of HTS.
