On Saturday, Syria’s Internal Security Forces and the competent authorities carried out a security operation in the city of Salkhad in the Suweida Governorate.
An official from the Internal Security Forces told SANA that the purpose of the operation was to “end the security chaos” there.
The operation, “resulted in the arrest of a number of outlaws who are wanted for murder, kidnapping, robbery, and confiscated quantities of weapons and ammunition they were in possession of,” and said that the operation was carried out with the participation of the people in addition to the security and police services.
A source in the Suweida Police Command said that the operation, “resulted in the surrender of a number of the wanted persons themselves under pressure from the people.”
