Yousef Fadeq al Qarqatli was shot dead by unknown gunmen in Tareeq al Sadd neighborhood in Daraa city, on May 15. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses and survivors to obtain more details of the incident.

SNHR condemns all killings which target civilians and calls on the governing forces in each area to bear responsibility for protecting civilians in the areas under their control, and to conduct investigations and reveal their findings to the public. Stability will not be achieved in Syria without achieving a political transition towards democracy, implemented according to a strict timetable.
