An official source stated the following:
An armed gang early Wednesday attacked a medical team in an ambulance while passing near al-Omari Mosque in Daraa.
A doctor, a paramedic and a driver were martyred in the attack, while the security forces in the vicinity of the site confronted the attackers and hit and arrested some of them.
A member of the security forces was also martyred in the attack.
The source added that the security forces will continue pursuing the armed gangs which terrify civilians, and execute killings, in addition to looting and burning public and private facilities in Daraa.
The official source disclosed that the armed gangs in Daraa have stored weapons and ammunitions inside al-Omari Mosque, and used children whom they had kidnapped from their families as human shields.
The source added that the security forces are pursuing the aggressive armed gangs.
The source pointed out that the armed gang, further, terrified the inhabitants of the houses adjacent to the Mosque occupying them as a launch pad to fire against passers-by and arrivals for the prayer.
The security forces encountered, pursued, and brought members of the gang as to face justice.
