Hama police department mourned a captain who was killed during clashes with a group who were described as “wanted men and outlaws” by the police.

In a brief statement on its Facebook page, the police agency said that Captain Mohannad Ali Wassouf, director of the Salhab district, died on Tuesday 3 December morning, in a “confrontation with a group of wanted men and outlaws.”

The Russian RT site quoted local sources in Hama city as saying that a group of “wanted men raided Salhab district’s center this morning and assassinated the captain.”

The site added that “Wassouf’s body will be transferred from the al-Suqaylabiyah hospital to the Masyaf national hospital, and then to his village of Anboura.”

The Masyaf News site published an image of Wassouf’s funeral.

The incident comes less than a month after the deaths of four regime flight officers, who were killed when their helicopter went down in the Hama military airport.
