Headman of al Karak al Sharqi village in Daraa suburbs shot dead by unidentified gunmen on February 1

The Mukhtar (village headman) of al Karak al Sharqi village in the southern suburbs of Daraa governorate, named as Jehad Sultan al Ne’meh, was shot dead on February 1, 2021, by unidentified gunmen in al Msaifra town in the eastern suburbs of the governorate. 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 controlling 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.
