Displaced civilian shot dead by unidentified gunmen in al Bab city in Aleppo suburbs on February 23

A displaced civilian from Tadmur city in the eastern suburbs of Homs governorate, named as Alaa Abboud, was shot dead on February 23, 2021, by unidentified gunmen who attacked a farm where he was working as a security guard near al Bab city in the eastern suburbs of Aleppo governorate, which is controlled by the Syrian National Army. 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.
