The security chaos continues in Daraa and raises the number of victims of assassinations in the province to 10 at least since the start of mobilization for the Syrian south operation

The security chaos continues in Daraa province in the Syrian south, which is witnessing with al-Quneitra province an alert situation between the rebel and Islamic factions and the regime forces and militiamen loyal to them, where each party is preparing for a military operation expected to be launched in the coming hours, where the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored today, Wednesday the 30th of May 2018, two new assassinations through gunfire, where the Syrian Observatory monitored firing by unidentified gunmen on a man in the road between the towns of al-Karak and al-Msifra which killed him, also unidentified gunmen assassinated a fighter of a rebel division on the road between the towns of al-Jiza and Kahil in Daraa countryside by shooting him, raising to 10, the number of assassinations carried out in Daraa province since dropping the leaflets by the regime forces which calls for “reconciliation, dropping weapons and cooperation to stop the bloodshed” on the 25th of May 2018.

While the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored the inability of the factions controlling the area to control the security situation and prevent the incidents from recurring, where the unknown gunmen carry out kidnappings, murders, shootings and planting IEDs on the roads civilian and military cars and vehicles, also the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights on the 25th of May 2018 monitored helicopters flying over Daraa province, dropping leaflets as a warning to the rebel and Islamic factions operating in the province, there were two versions of the leaflets, and they say:

“Don’t be like these, this is the inevitable end, for anyone who insists on keep carrying the guns, the ensure of your life is an irreplaceable opportunity, don’t lose it with your stubbornness, drop your weapon and leave before it’s too late” and the other leaflets say: “your life and the fate of your children are more important than your stubbornness, hey gunman, for whom you are gambling with your life?! Why don’t you live with your family and your children like others?! Where are they those who pushed you to die, those who made the career of murder, sabotage, and destruction a beautiful career in your eyes?! All of them have abandoned you and went for the death, you have two choices, either the inevitable death or abandoning the weapon, the men of the Syrian Arab Army are coming, make your decision before it is too late.”

Dropping these leaflets came with a Russian push and supervision, and comes in an attempt to achieve a “reconciliation” in Daraa province, or to turn after that to the option of military operation, of which the regime forces and their allies and with the Russian support; have started preparing for, where the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored the regime forces bringing military reinforcements with their allies to the area, where tens of vehicles and hundreds of members have been transported to Daraa province in the Syrian south, in addition to the vehicles and members who have returned from the confrontation with the “Islamic State” organization in south Damascus.
