On October 30, at least three attacks took place in different parts of the southern Syrian governorate of Daraa where the situation is still unstable.
The first attack targeted Abdul al-Kafi al-Ali, an alleged informer of the General Intelligence Directorate. The man was shot and killed by unidentified gunmen on a road between his hometown al-Shajarah and the nearby town of Nafa`ah in the western countryside of Daraa.
A few hours later, doctor Widad al-Harriri was seriously wounded when her vehicle was targeted with an improvised explosive device in the northern Daraa countryside. The doctor was driving from her hometown Jbab to her clinic in the town of al-Sanamayn.
According to Syrian sources, al-Harriri is the wife of retired Syrian Colonel Zakaria Qanaa, who is currently holding the position of Vice President of the Syrian Arab Football Federation.
The last attack targeted an officer of the Military Intelligence Directorate. The officer was shot and killed by unidentified gunmen near the town of Saida in the eastern countryside of Daraa.
The Russian-sponsored reconciliation process in Daraa was concluded earlier this week. The process was successful. However, as proven by the new attacks, the governorate is still unstable.
Syrian government forces and local fighters n Daraa should make more efforts in order to secure and stabilize the governorate.
