Shepherds killed and herd stolen in Hama countryside
On Tuesday morning (2/3/2021), the bodies of four shepherds were found in Khanasser, in pastoral lands, in the eastern Hama countryside.
The regime forces transferred the bodies of the shepherds to the Salamiyah National Hospital near the area, accusing ISIS of perpetrating the crime, while the evidence indicates the involvement of Iranian militias (Al-Baqer Brigade) and the Regime’s Fourth Division in the crime, as they control the area.
The bodies of the four shepherds, who were from the Al-Haddadin clan, were found dead by shooting in the head, while the herd of cattle, which numbered about 250 sheep, was stolen.
It is worth noting that the killings of shepherds and the theft or destruction of a herd of sheep in the event of a failure to discover the matter were repeated in the countryside of Raqqa, Deir Ezzor and Hama, and in all cases, Iranian militias and regime forces were responsible for the killings and theft.
