Civilian shot dead by unidentified gunmen in al Sheikh Maskin city in Daraa suburbs on April 8

A former member of the executive office in Daraa governorate council, named as Saedou Talal al Jabr, was shot dead by unknown gunmen in al Sheikh Maskin city in the governorate’s northern suburbs on April 8, 2021. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses and survivors 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.
