Hussein al-Jabali, a First Lieutenant and member of the Civil Police and public security force in al Bab city in the eastern suburbs of Aleppo suburbs, was shot dead by unknown gunmen near Fatimah al Zahraa Mosque in al Gharbi neighborhood in al Bab city on November 18, 2020. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses to obtain more details of the incident.

SNHR condemns all attacks of this nature which target and kill 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 into all such incidents 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.
