Two men, identified as 31-year-old Rwad Rakan al-Hajli, and 34-year-old Wesam Hayel al-Hajli from Anz village in southern rural Suwayda governorate, were shot dead on November 16, 2023, by gunmen we have not yet been able to identify in Tal B’at area in southern Suwayda governorate near the Syrian-Jordanian border.
The area is under the control of Syrian regime forces. The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) is still trying to locate eyewitnesses to obtain more information about the incident. We call on the controlling forces to uphold their responsibilities for protecting civilians in their areas, to investigate this incident, and to make the investigation’s findings known to the public. Syria will never have true stability without a genuine political transition process towards democracy within a fixed timetable.
