Locals find bodies of 2 drug smugglers, soldier in Syria’s Daraa

DARAA, Syria (North Press) – Locals found on Saturday the bodies of three individuals, two of them drug smugglers, in the countryside of Daraa in southern Syria.

A local source told North Press that locals found the bodies of Raad al-Radi and Muhammad al-Sharif in the village of Umm al-Miathin in the east of Daraa.

The source said both al-Radi and al-Sharif trafficked and smuggled narcotics from Syria to Jordan and worked and collaborated with the Military Security Branch of the Syrian government forces.

Additionally, the locals also found the body of a soldier in the government forces with visible gunshot wounds in the town of Dael in the north of Daraa, according to the source.

He added that Jamal Muhammad al-Sukhni had gone missing two days earlier. He hailed from the village of Qarfa in the north of Daraa.

Since 2018, Daraa and its surrounding areas have been witnessing a state of chaos and insecurity, with many incidents of killings occurring without any particular group taking responsibility for these attacks.
