Hussein Muhammad al Selh was from Jeb al Ghouli village which is administratively a part of al Mansoura town in the western suburbs of Raqqa governorate. Hussein was shot dead along with his son, Nouri, by unknown gunmen in the village on June 26, 2020. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses to obtain 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 and the rule of law, implemented according to a strict timetable.
