Rebels kill Attorney General and Judge in Hama

Monday, February 20th, 2012

The official Syrian news agency SANA reports that an armed “terrorist group” on Sunday assassinated General Attorney in Idleb Nidal Ghazal, Judge Mohammed Ziyadeh and their driver, on their way to the Palace of Justice in Hama.

The rebels opened fire on the car near Hussam Hijazi School at al-Dabeitt Neighborhood “causing their martyrdom with their driver.”

Earlier on Saturday, an armed group killed a member of Council of Aleppo City Jamal al-Bish at As-Safirah District in Aleppo.

Hama was the site of an earlier revolt against Hafez al-Assad, the current Syrian president’s father, in February 1982. The Syrian army was reported to have massacred as many as 40 thousand civilians to put down the uprising.
