Two civilians killed by unknown gunmen in Atherya village in Hama suburbs on November 20

Two civilians from Raqqa governorate, one of them a woman, were shot dead by unknown gunmen near Atherya village in the eastern suburbs of Hama governorate on November 20, 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.
