Suweida Suweida governorate terrorized by increased gang activity, kidnappings VideoBattles for Syria August 17th 2018 Images and updates from the Suweida Desert The Governorate of Suweida, located in Syria’s south, is home to the country’s Druze minority, an ethnoreligious group which practices a monotheistic Abrahamic religion and speaks the Arabic language. Historically, the region has been mostly pro-government, even at the outbreak of the country’s nine-year-crisis and civil war. al-Suweida (السويداء) is the capital and largest city in the province of the same name, and therefore an administrative center and major transportation hub.

Medicine is scarce and has become increasingly unattainable during the past couple of months amid reports of pharmacies shutting down.
According to Syrian journalist Asser Khattab, two smaller demonstrations took place in Suweida during the last month. In recent years, Russia and Turkey, which backs opposition factions, have become the main power-brokers in Syria.
Over the past few weeks, Suweida has seen some of largest protests to take place in regime areas for several years, motivated by the dire economic situation and growing anger about endemic corruption.
The recent demonstrations have been remarkable due to their size and audacity. They have included calls for the end of the regime, activists carrying the "Free Syria" flag, and even chants commemorating the anniversary of activist-rebel fighter Abdel Baset Al-Sarout's death.
Few analysts believe that the demonstrations in this relatively insular part of Syria represent a direct threat to Bashar Al-Assad's rule, although the scenes are remarkable given that any protests in regime areas are usually swiftly and brutally crushed.
Since the start of the month they have been taking place on a daily-basis and in growing numbers.
Many of the men and women taking part in the demonstrations were likely too young to be involved in the protests, Shami said.
Instead they represent a "new generation" of activists in Suweida, driven by a future that appears increasingly bleak for young people faced with a bankrupt economy, insecurity, rampant corruption, and a country in ruins.
They have chanted in solidarity with other places that have witnessed protests such as Deira and Idlib," Shami said.
Although it is difficult to gage the level of opposition to the Assad regime in Suweida, the third-way tendency appears to be popular in the province, something that reflects the Druze minority's own historic sense of independence and self-reliance, despite their key role in the independence movement against the French.
The province's geographic isolation and lack of resources have made Suweida less of a prize for warring factions, which has also helped the province maintain its neutrality over the past nine-years.
A third-way. This third-way tendency is best represented by the Rijal Al-Karama "Men of Dignity" , a Druze religious and civil movement that was led by charismatic cleric Sheikh Wahid Al-Balous , until his assassination in Sheikh Balous opposed the regime's conscription drives in Suweida, urging young men to instead take up arms and defend the province from Al-Nusra Front and other extremist factions.
Rijal Al-Karama clashed with Assad's forces on numerous occasions, owing to their tumultuous relationship with the regime and insistence on independence during the war for the Druze people.
Sheikh Balous' supporters believe this led to his death, along with 25 others, in twin car bomb attacks in Suweida city.
Thomas Pierret, senior researcher, CNRS-Ireman, Aix-en-Provence, said that the self-defence militias did help the Druze assert a level of autonomy.
This likely led the regime to believe that Suweida - like other parts of Syria - was slipping out of its hands. We have seen them linking up directly to the revolution with chants and slogans used by protesters in , calling for the fall of the regime - Leila Al-Shami "Rijala Al-Karama was established to protect Suweida from the Islamic State, but they also did also not support the regime.
Pierret said that from his own experiences in southern Syria, he felt the Druze of Suweida felt a strong sense of solidarity with cohorts across almost all parts of the Middle East.
Druze symbolism - such as the five-striped flag and pentagram star - also helped the community proclaim their own faith and identity.
While the Druze are a religious minority that have experienced persecution and some difficulties with neighbouring Sunni Bedouin tribes, their relationship with the current regime is a complicated one.
Bar a few high-profile cases, such as Issam Zahreddine , many Druze believe there are few opportunities for them to advance in the military or government, while Suweida remains one of the most isolated and least developed parts of Syria.
