Displaced man shot dead by unknown gunmen in al Hawl Camp in Hasaka suburbs on November 16

A 47-year-old displaced man, named as Hamad Khader Salameh, who had been living in al Hawl IDPs Camp in the eastern suburbs of Hasaka governorate, was shot dead by unknown gunmen in the camp’s fourth sector on November 16, 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.
