A woman, identified as Teryaq Rustum, from Jourin town in western rural Hama governorate, and a child, identified as Arwa’ Maher Abbas from Qal’et Merza town in western rural Hama governorate, died on August 29, 2023, of wounds sustained on August 25, 2023, when Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) forces used a rocket launcher to fire multiple shells at the towns of Jourin and Qal’et Merza in western rural Hama governorate.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) notes that HTS has unequivocally violated Security Council resolutions 2139 and 2254, both of which prohibit indiscriminate attacks, as well as violating the rules of international humanitarian law on distinguishing between civilians and combatants. The perpetrators must be held accountable.
