A man, identified as Mohammad Mustafa al-Jabbawi, was shot dead on November 17, 2023, by gunmen we have not yet been able to identify, while he was on his way to a local mosque in his hometown, Inkhel, in northern rural Daraa governorate.
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.
