Col. Mohammad Abdo Khaddour, Sgt. Maj. Ghassan Mehrez martyred at the hands of armed criminal groups in Homs
Damascus– An official source stated that on 19/04/2011, armed criminal groups in the city of Homs committed a new crime by opening fire on Colonel Mohammad Abdo Khaddour, shooting him in the head and torso while he was heading to work and martyring him.
The criminal group wasn’t content with murder; it also resorted to mutilating Col. Khadour’s face.
Sergeant Major Ghassan Mehrez was also shot while driving a minibus to work, martyring him as well.
The source added that this blood that was spilled on the road was meant to be spilt in defense of the country’s freedom and dignity. However, the treacherous and criminal armed groups controlled by sides abroad insisted upon carrying out their criminal plots.
On the other hand, the armed criminal groups continued their aggressions against the security of the motherland and the citizens targeting two police stations in al-Hamidiya and al-Bayyada in Homs as six policemen were wounded while two members of the armed group were killed and five wounded.
Homs Police Chief, Brigadier Hamid Asa’ad Mar’ai, said that armed criminal groups tried to set fire at al-Bayyada Police Station after surrounding it, adding that they fired at its personnel and wounded a number of them.
In a statement to SANA, Director of Homs National Hospital, Ghassan Tannous, said “Six members of the security forces were brought to the hospital Tuesday dawn as they had various injuries after they were shot and physically attacked with sharp tools and batons during their shift at al-Bayyada and al-Hamidiya police stations.”
He added “The injured stressed that about 50 armed men attacked al-Bayyada Police Station at 03:00 a.m. and opened fire at the security members and attacked one of them with batons and sharp tools, indicating that the same scene took place at al-Hamidiya Police Station.”
صرح مصدر مسؤول اليوم أن مجموعات الغدر والإجرام المسلحة في مدينة حمص أقدمت على ارتكاب جريمة جديدة بإطلاق النار على العقيد الركن محمد عبدو خضور وإصابته في الرأس والصدر وهو متوجه إلى دوامه ما أدى إلى استشهاده ولم تكتف عصابة الغدر والإجرام بالقتل بل عمدت إلى تشويه الوجه.. كما تعرض المساعد الأول غسان محرز إلى طلق ناري وهو يقوم بواجبه كسائق ميكروباص بينما كان متوجهاً إلى وحدته ما أدى إلى استشهاده أيضاً
وأضاف المصدر أن هذا الدم السخي الذي تمت إراقته على قارعة الطريق كان مأمولاً منه أن يراق لأجل الدفاع عن حرية الوطن وشموخه وإعلاء رايته خفاقة ولمقارعة أعداء أمتنا الذين يحتلون جزءاً من أرضنا الحبيبة إلا أن مجموعات الغدر والإجرام المسلحة المرتهنة لأسيادها في الخارج أبت إلا أن تنفذ المخطط الإجرامي المرسوم لها
