5- Assassination of 26 members of terrorist groups such as ISIS, Free Syrian Army, and so on

It is worth mentioning that the southern regions Syria have always been susceptible to chaos, armed conflicts, assassination, and so on, because there have been dormant terrorist cells and the initial militants in those areas since the onset of foreign-backed war in the Arab country.
The spread of assassination and insecurity in southern Syria has clearly affected economic activity and people’s lives; so, despite the fact that several years have passed, insecurity has not yet been completely eradicated. Therefore, the lack of a clear horizon for the end of insecurity is driving many residents of southern Syria to come to the conclusion that they have to migrate from their residential areas.
