Civil Police First Lieutenant was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in al Bab city in Aleppo suburbs on April 15

A first lieutenant with the Civil Police, identified as Khaled Jamal al Khatib, from Marea city in the northern suburbs of Aleppo governorate, was shot dead on April 15, 2021, by unidentified gunmen at the entrance to al Bab city in the eastern suburbs of the 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 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.
