Hama – SMART

On Saturday, two families clashed using light weapons in a wedding party in the Syrian government forces-controlled village of al-Zabadah, 22 kilometers southern Hama, Central Syria. The clashes injured four people.

Ayman al-Hamwi, an activist of the village, reported to SMART that armed persons attacked a wedding party for the al-Sawalha family in al-Zabadah, shooting directly toward guests, injuring four of them.

Al-Hamwi added that the armed persons, who are from the al-Shantout family and members of the Fifth Assault Corps (FAC), which is formed by Russia, used light weapons, including guns and Kalashnikov machineguns, forcing the other family to clash with them.

The source also said that the reason behind the clashes is old disagreements between the two families, mentioning that the two families own weapons and that several members of them are with the Syrian government forces.

On June 28, 2020, Syrian government forces members clashed with FAC members in the Daraa governorate, killing a Syrian government forces officer and injuring members from both parties.

People in Syrian government forces-controlled areas suffer from chaos and unstable security situation, amidst shooting incidents and declined living conditions.
