Gunmen shot and killed the head of a local council in eastern Daraa on September 27

Abdul Qader Mahmoud al Zu’bei, aged 63, the head of the local council in al Msaifra town in eastern Daraa governorate, was shot dead on September 27, 2022, by unidentified gunmen on a motorbike while he was heading to his workplace at the local council building in al Msaifra town, which is controlled by Syrian regime forces.

SNHR is still trying to reach eyewitnesses to obtain more details of the incident.

SNHR condemns all killings of civilians and calls on the 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 transition process moving towards democracy, implemented according to a set timetable.
