Syrian 4th Division Officer Assassinated In Western Daraa

Donate

On October 18 morning, an officer of the Syrian Arab Army 4th Division was assassinated in the western countryside of Daraa.

The officer, Lt. Hassan Ibrahim, was reportedly shot and killed by unidentified gunmen in the town of Sahem al-Golan. The gunmen managed to escape.

According to the Horan Free League, Lt. Ibrahim was responsible for a security post in a scientific research center in the town of Jillen. The officer is originally from the governorate of Hama.

No side has claimed responsibility for the assassination, so far. ISIS cells, local radicals and even foreign intelligence agencies may be behind the attack.

Dozens of Syrian service members and local fighters were assassinated in Daraa in the last few months. Earlier this week, former rebel commander Adham al-Akrad and four of his comrades were ambushed and killed in the northern countryside of the governorate.

The lack of any serious cooperation between government forces and local fighters is behind the state of lawlessness prevailing over the Daraa. The two sides are still far from reaching a real understanding.
