Mayor of Nahta town in Daraa suburbs killed by unknown gunmen on January 28

The mayor of Nahta town in the eastern suburbs of Daraa governorate, named as Mamdouh Fakhr al Maf’alani, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in front of his home in the town on January 28, 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.
