Palestinian Volunteer at Oxfam International Injured in Southern Syria Shootouts

26-year-old refugee Ibrahim Mohamed, a volunteer at Oxfam International, sustained wounds in a shooting attack that resulted in the death of two Oxfam members.

Unidentified assailants unleashed gunshots on the access road between the southern Syrian towns of AlYadouda and AlMuzeireeb.

Oxfam staff were killed and/or injured while in a relief mission trying to assist schools west of Daraa.

Two of the injured workers sustained severe wounds. They were taken to the Daraa National Hospital and treated by Red Crescent medics.

Oxfam paid tribute to the workers, condemned the attack and called on all sides to ensure the safety of staff delivering lifesaving aid to civilians caught in the conflict.

Moutaz Adham, Oxfam Syria Country Director, said: “We are devastated by the loss of two valued colleagues who were killed as they worked to deliver aid to civilians caught in the Syrian conflict. Our love and thoughts are with their families.”

“We condemn the attack in the strongest possible terms. It is essential that aid workers are able to get lifesaving assistance to civilians without being attacked themselves”, he stated.
