Gunmen killed a civilian in western Idlib governorate on August 1

A shepherd, from Koko village in western Idlib governorate, Hikmat Riyad Hadad, was shot and killed on August 1, 2022, by unidentified gunmen, on the main road south of Koko village, which is under the joint control of Hay’at Tahrir al Sham and factions of the armed opposition.

SNHR is still trying to reach eyewitnesses for more details of the incident. SNHR condemns all killings of civilians and calls on controlling forces to assume their responsibility for protecting the civilian population in areas under their control and to launch an investigation into this incident and reveal its conclusions to the public. There will be no stability in Syria without a genuine political process moving towards democracy, implemented according to a set timetable.
