Civilian shot dead by unidentified gunmen near Tebna village in Daraa suburbs on January 7

A head of the municipal council of Jasem city in the northwestern of Daraa governorate, named as Radi Karim Asaad al Jalm, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen while he was passing on the crossing of Tebna village in the northern suburbs of the governorate on January 7, 2021. 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.
