Baath Party Guard Opens Fire on Car, Kills Lady
Armed guards in civilian clothes stationed at the Baath Party branch opened fire today on a car leaving a wedding at Aleppo’s Carlton Hotel and killed Marina Shehwaro. Mrs. Shehwaro is the wife of a late priest in Aleppo and the mother of prominent Syrian Revolution activist and blogger Marcell Shehwaro.
The incident took place shortly after midnight. Mrs. Shehwaro was riding with two other passengers in the car when they approached the Baath Party building. The guards, who were dressed in civilian clothing, opened fire on the car killing Mrs. Shehwaro. She was taken to Aleppo’s AlRazi hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Ms. Shehwaro who is visibly upset at her mother’s untimely death posted an update on her Facebook wall:
So the guards of the Party decided to open fire on the car from behind. A bullet claimed my mother’s life, this simply, and deprived me of her presence in my life. And to those who believe that armed gangs [killed her]. You’re right, armed gangs did kill her. An armed gang that is this regime.
