Daraa - SMART

On Monday, loyalist artillery forces shelled the city of al-Hara in Daraa, Southern Syria, killing one civilian and injuring others.

Abu Wissam al-Daoud, the head of al-Hara local council, reported that the loyalist forces in the Jdaiyah base targeted the southern district of al-Hara with artillery shells. The shelling killed one civilian and injured three others.

Mutaz Abu Zaid, the media official of the al-Hara hospital, reported that a civilian was transported to the hospital where he died from his injuries, which covered his entire body.

On Saturday, local activists documented the killing of 18 civilians, including children, after the loyalist forces bombed al-Hara (50 kilometers north of Daraa). The bombing fell on the third day of the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr.

The targeting of al-Hara coincides with reports that the Syrian government intends to launch a military operation in Southern Syria. The loyalist forces continue to send reinforcements to their bases on the perimeter of Daraa. A commander in the Free Syrian Army estimates that the loyalist forces will attack the area in the next few hours.

Earlier, the United States said that Russia, as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, is officially responsible for stopping Syrian government military operations in Southern Syria. The U.S. threatened to take strict measures if Russia does not intervene.
