Remembering Raed Fares and Hammoud al-Juneid

This feature is from the Spring 2019 issue of Syria Notes.

Raed Fares and Hammoud al-Juneid were both killed on the 23rd of November 2018, targeted in a gun attack in the town of Kafranbel, in Idlib province, Syria. A report by the Syrian Network for Human Rights concluded that the jihadist group Hay’at Tahrir al Sham was responsible for their murder.

Raed Fares was the most widely known civil society activist of Syria’s revolution. He and fellow activist Hammoud Juneid had been at the centre of organising demonstrations and civil resistance against the Assad regime in their home town of Kafranbel ever since the early days of protests in 2011.

In this issue we are publishing a number of interviews conducted as part of an ongoing Syria Notes project on Raed and Hammoud’s legacy.
