Daraa (Syria News) The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported, on Tuesday, that Syrian regime forces attacked the city of Daraa, its countryside and several areas in the northern countryside of Hama, using mortar shells and machine guns.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) explained that the Syrian regime forces fired several mortar shells on areas in Daraa al-Balad in the city of Daraa, while pointed out that the regime forces attacked areas in Bosr al-Harir Town in the eastern countryside of Daraa, using machine guns; however, no casualties were reported.
Meanwhile in Hama Province, the SOHR revealed that the regime forces renewed the shelling on areas in Hasraya Village, in the northern countryside of the province, but casualties fell, while targeted, this morning, areas in the towns of al-Lataminah, Kafr Zitta and the villages of al-Jbisat and al-Sakhr, in the northern countryside of Hama, causing material damage to citizens’ property.
It is noteworthy that the city of Daraa played an important role in the 2011 uprising against the government led by President Bashar al-Assad, where 15 youths were arrested for scribbling graffiti on their school wall denouncing the Assad regime. In early June 2017, the majority of the town of Daraa was reported to have been destroyed by fighting.
