Terrorist atrocities in Daraa won’t hold back citizens from voting
Governor of Daraa, Mohammad Khaled al-Hannous said the massacre against residents of the al-Matar neighborhood in Daraa (39 civilian killed) won’t hold back citizens in the province from participation in a presidential vote set for June 3.
Terrorists on Thursday fired mortar shells on a tent packed with people-among them women and children- who had gathered to show support to the elections in al-Matar neighborhood in Daraa city, killing several citizens and wounding others.
The governor told the Syrian Satellite Channel on Friday, during a phone call, that the people of Daraa “cannot wait to head to the ballots in the hopes of being rid of the thieves and bandits who know nothing but killing and destruction.”
The acts of terrorists have changed popular temperament during the crisis, added the governor, especially after their ties with the Israelis came to light.
The governor said he welcomes those who opt to lay down arms and straighten out; indicating that whoever chooses to persist in his path against the Syrian army and state is an ally to Israel.
