On Wednesday, three members of the regime’s security forces were killed, after they were targeted in the city of Daraa.
Nadaa Syria’s correspondent in Daraa reported that unidentified persons shot at members of the military security while they were in the al-Sabil neighborhood of the city. The members were transferred to the National Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
The three members — Hamada al-Dahi Bajbouj, Rami Maher Bajbouj, and Habib Kawameleh — were part of a group affiliated with Mustafa al-Masalmeh. They used to fight in the Free Syrian Army before they reconciled with the Assad regime.
In retaliation, members of the al-Masalmeh group climbed onto the roofs of the buildings in the neighborhood and fired randomly. A man and a child from Daraa were shot as a result.
Daraa is under the control of the 15th Division of the Assad regime’s army.
Al-Sabil neighborhood is located within the security square, which the Assad regime maintained its control over in previous years, despite its significant decline in control during the summer of 2018.
