Woman and husband shot dead by unidentified gunmen in W. Daraa governorate on May 16

A woman, named as Maha Yahya Abdul Rahman, and her husband, Suleiman Khaled al Rayyashi, were shot dead on May 16, 2021, by unidentified gunmen on the road linking the villages of Abdin and Jmala in the western suburbs of Daraa governorate while they were returning to their home in Abdin village by motorcycle.
The area is controlled by Syrian regime forces with SNHR 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.
