At least one man was killed as militants in an East Ghouta town opened fire on a group of protestors calling on for negotiation with the Syrian government, Al-Masdar News says.
According to local sources, scores of civilians in the rebel-held town of Kafr Batna took the street, reportedly demanding militants to leave their town and hand it over to the Syrian army.
However, militants of the Nusra-affiliate Faylaq al-Rahman indiscriminately shot at protestors, killing one and injuring others.
The sources filmed the incident where Walid al-Nimr was shot dead, Syrian news agency says.
Meanwhile, a number of civilians were reportedly wounded after being shot by militants while attempting to leave Harasta to government-held areas.
