Wael al-Omar, head of the White Helmets’ training office, was killed by an unknown attacker late Wednesday, Moustafa Hajj Yusuf said.
“#Civil_Defense has lost another White Helmet volunteer,” the White Helmet’s said on Twitter.
“Omar was killed in Idlib city after being shot to death by an unknown [attacker] north of the city while he was heading to work,” it added.
The White Helmets’ civil-defense center in Idlib was attacked by an unknown group in August, leaving seven members dead.
The White Helmets, officially known as Syria Civil Defense, is a volunteer organization that operates in opposition-held parts of Syria.Last Mod: 23 Kasım 2017, 16:21
