Syrian Gov’t Removes Daraa Checkpoint

Opposition activists said the pro-government security and military committee decided to dismantle the Hameida AlTaher checkpoint set up in Daraa.

As warfare reached a zenith in Syria, the checkpoint, pitched in AlSahari neighborhood since the outbreak of the conflict in 2011, had long served as an ambush where Palestinians and Syrians were kidnapped or killed by pro-government militias.

Speaking with AGPS, Palestinian refugee Rima said gunmen deployed at the checkpoint killed her brother and cousin along with a Palestinian barber on November 10, 2012 without identifying the reasons for such a crime, in the first case of extrajudicial execution recorded in Daraa.

Several Palestinian youths were kidnapped as they passed through the checkpoint and forced into military conscription with pro-government battalions.
