Gunmen try to infiltrate Al-Quraya town as tension continues in rural Al-Sweida
The Syrian Observatory has monitored clashes with machine guns between local factions in Al-Sweida and armed groups, following the armed groups’ attempt to infiltrate the north-western outskirts of Al-Quraya town.
Reliable sources have informed SOHR that dignitaries of Al-Sweida and Daraa provinces are seeking to end the disputes between Sahil Hawran and Jabal Al-Arab. Preparation and coordination are being made for a meeting regarding this issue.
Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that masked men set fire to a camp on the outskirts of al-Quraya town in rural Al-Sweida and then fled after shooting at them.
Meanwhile, security tensions continue to prevail in the area following violent clashes a few days ago between local factions in Al-Sweida and Busra al-Sham militants.
On March 28, SOHR sources reported that the bodies of six persons of Sweida were handed over to Jabal-Al Arab’s dignitaries by the Syrian Red Crescent. The handover took place in Ara area, west of Sweida.
The fighters were executed by Bosra al-Sham militants during the clashes.
Observatory sources added that tense calm has returned to southern rural Al-Sweida following the bloody events in the area.
