On April 22, four Syrian soldiers and intelligence officers were killed or wounded in two new separate attacks in the southern governorate of Daraa.
In the first attack, unidentified gunmen opened fire at two soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army 4th Division while they were passing on a road between the towns of Tell Shihab and Muzayrib in western Daraa. One of the soldiers died on the sport, while the other was wounded. Both victims are natives of Daraa.
The second attack saw unidentified gunmen targeting two officers from the Syrian Air Force Intelligence Directorate west of the town of Dael in northern Daraa. One of the two officers, Lt. Mustafa Abul Hakim from Homs, was killed. The other officer sustained wounds only.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks yet. Such attacks are usually carried out by radical militants or ISIS cells, which are known to be active in northern and western Daraa.
The attacks on government service members and even former rebels in Daraa increased this month. Civilians were not spared. On April 22, gunmen gunned down Ahmad Hasish, a former rescue worker, in Tell Shihab.
