Two civilians shot dead by unidentified gunmen in W. Aleppo suburbs on May 7

Two men from Tal’ad village in the western suburbs of Aleppo governorate, named as Muhmmad Abdul Rahman Salem and Abdullah Ali Abdullah Salem, were shot dead on May 7, 2021 by unidentified gunmen on Kafr Naseh road in the western suburbs of the governorate, which is under the joint control of factions from the Armed Opposition and Hay’at Tahrir al Sham. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses and survivors 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.
