Village mayor shot dead by unidentified gunmen in N. Daraa governorate on June 5

The mayor of Ataman Ataman village in the northern suburbs of Daraa governorate, named as Faisal Awad Allouh, was shot dead on June 5, 2021, by unidentified gunmen in the village, which is controlled by Syrian regime forces. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses 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.
