Syrian Kurd killed in Lebanon
Syria-Lebanon, Politics, 12/31/2005
The Arab human rights organization in Syria said on Friday that a Kurdish Syrian citizen, Shams Eddine Ahmad Mahmoud, was killed while he was at work in a fuel station in Beirut on Thursday.
In a statement, the organization said that Shams Eddine Mahmoud "was killed in Beirut by unidentified persons, while on top of his work in a fuel station in Beirut. He is from Siha village east of Qamishli, noting that he was married and a father for 8 children.
The organization expressed great and great concern over his killing and that it is "the second crime in less than one month," demanding "the Lebanese authorities to make a neutral investigation to find the killers and prosecute them." The organization also demanded the "Syrian authorities to follow up the file of the Syrian citizens in Lebanon and to take all measures for ensuring their security."
It is not clear if the killing was a result of the politically charged atmosphere of tension between the two countries, or if it was an unrelated event. However, the spokesman for the organization Ammar al-Qurabi considered that "there is a danger threatening Syrian citizens in Lebanon and they have to be careful while moving," appealing "all Lebanese officials to stop offensive statements against Syria, because this deepens the hatred of the Lebanese, and a price for that is paid by innocent Syrians rather that the Syrian authorities."
