Daraa - SMART

On Sunday, injured Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters organized a sit-in in front of the local council of the city of Nawa, 30 kilometers northwest of Daraa, Southern Syria. The fighters protested against the corruption in Nawa and demanded their rights.

Hussam Jahmani, an injured commander of the Muhammad al-Fatih brigade, said that most of the injured fighters had amputations and the local council and organizations in the area provide neither financial nor moral support for the injured fighters.

Al-Jahmani called upon the local council to provide suitable jobs for the injured fighters, such as standing guard. Al-Jahmani added that when the injured fighters apply for jobs, employers reject their applications under the pretext that the applicants need certain certificates.

Fawaz al-Akhras, the head of the local council, said that there are 250 fighters with amputations in the city of Nawa. Al-Akhras thinks that life is not fair to this category of injured fighters.

Al-Akhras added that they "have nothing to give to the injured fighters," saying that they seek to contact organizations to provide support and stalls for the injured so they can sell things in the Friday market.

On Dec. 17, 2017, injured fighters established the al-Amal (Hope) Association in the town of al-Mazarib in Daraa governorate. The association seeks to give care to injured fighters in Southern Syria. Most of the members of the association have amputations due to Russian and Syrian government bombings.
