17 reported killed in fighting in
Syria: At least 17 people were killed and dozens wounded in the Syrian province of Sweida in clashes between residents and gangs aligned with state security agencies, activists and local media said. Over the weekend, the detention of one resident by government-backed fighters prompted others to set up roadblocks and detain members of government-allied gangs and besiege their bases, the local Suwayda24 media outlet reported. The resulting fighting left 17 people dead, Sweida’s health directorate said.
