Daraa security vacuum | Volunteer in regime’s “military security service” shot dead in western Daraa

Daraa Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: Reliable sources have informed SOHR that unknown gunmen assassinated a volunteer in “the 215th Raids Branch” of the regime’s “military security service” in Nawa city in the western countryside of Daraa.

It is worth noting that the victim was an opposition fighter during the factions’ control of the area, and he later joined regime forces after reconciliation and settlement deals.

Since the beginning of the security chaos in Daraa in early June 2019, Syrian Observatory activists have documented more than 703 attacks and assassination attempts by gunfire and detonations of IEDs, motorcycle-bombs and car-bombs. These attacks and assassinations claimed the lives of 466 persons, categorised as follows:

128 civilians, including 12 women and 15 children

210 regime soldiers, loyalists and collaborators with regime security services

83 fighters of factions that struck “reconciliation and settlements” deals with the regime and became in the ranks of regime’s security branches, including former commanders

23 Syrian militiamen affiliated to the Lebanese Hezbollah and Iranian forces

22 members of the so-called 5th Corps which was established by Russia.
