Two More Revolution Heroes Lost in Idlib Today : Hmoud Jneid and Raed Fares

Yasser Ashkar

In Syria it has become the norm that good people leave us far too early. Earlier today Syrian activists Raed Fares and Hmoud Jneid were assassinated in Idlib countryside.

They were shot dead by unknown persons from a moving vehicle in Kafr Nabl( kafar Nubul ) of Idlib. It is just the newest tragedy to be added to a long list of atrocities in Syria. Their killers are the enemies of thought who choose as their targets every free voice that dares to speak out against injustice, brutality and corruption in our homeland

.
Since 2011 Fares had repeatedly survived death as a prominent figure in the Syrian revolution. The messages being paraded on the banners were like a sad carnival today in Kafr Nabal but they will continue

.
While speaking in a past interview about the infamous art projects of Kafr Nabal that he helped create Fares said: “The biggest project we have going is our radio station, called Radio Fresh FM. We broadcast 24 hours a day with different kinds of programming – news updates, women’s programming, children’s shows, breaking news updates and warnings about nearby airstrikes or incoming airstrikes. We warn civilians when there are regime or Russian helicopters flying in the sky. We let people know which direction they’re headed.”

.
Fares said their station is one of the most listened to in all of Syria with more than 400,000 listeners; adding that they also have three affiliated magazines and a training center for media activists, journalists and presenters that are subsidiary projects facilitated by the radio station

.

Fares had a high regard for the role of Syrian women in Syria : “Women have the most critical role in rebuilding Syria and raising the next generation of Syrians – that’s the idea behind the project, “he said.

When asked to define the goal in facilitating their many projects Fares said; “The goal is to build a homeland. Everybody knows that we live on a farm owned by Assad’s family. Our goal is to destroy that farm and build a homeland in which Syrians can truly live.”
“Assad is responsible for all of the killing and all of the terror in Syria”, he added.

Junaid and Fares were members of a team that included Khaled Issa, the media activist who was killed in 2016.
Syrian revolutionary heroes continue to perish one after the other. In spite of the continued threat, as well as because of the great sacrifices that have already been made, the Syrian revolution continues and we who are still free to speak on their behalf will not be silent

.
I am deeply saddened by the loss of two more of my brave compatriots

.
RIP Hmoud Jneid and Raed Fares
