A local Daraa news correspondent reported that those killed were four members of the Iranian-backed Fourth Armored Division. The victims included the group’s leader, Abdul Rahman Juma al-Ali (a.k.a. Abu Amer), and three other members.
The correspondent explained that the group in question was kidnapped on Sunday evening, from inside the town of al-Musaifra, which is located in the eastern countryside of Daraa. The victims were found dead this morning.
