Al-Roudan, originally from the town of al-Musikah in northern Daraa, was a senior commander of the Tribes Army, that was one of the largest anti-government factions in the governorate. The commander joined the reconciliation process in 2018.

According to the sources, al-Roudan is now leading an armed group that operates in Daraa under the commander of Iranian forces.

Al-Roudan was reportedly linked with Iranian forces before the 2018 reconciliation agreement. In 2015, he handed over the bodies of a number of Iranian and Afghan fighters who were killed in a failed attack in Daraa.

This was the second attempt on al-Roudan’s life. In November of 2019, he was shot near the town of Izraa in northern Daraa.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the new attempt on al-Roudan’s life. The terrorist group is becoming more active in the northern and eastern parts of Daraa.
