Al-Rawnah District witnessed a tragic incident which resulted in the death of a 26 year old soldier, Ahmed Mahyoob, and the wounding of his companion Najeeb Basha and 22 year old Sulaiman Farhan, who were among the security personnel deployed in the area.
The victims were ordered by the director of the district and the Manager of Taxation Brach, to bring the citizen Khaled Hassan Yahya to pay the tax imposed upon him by the government. This prompted the aforementioned citizen to open fire at the policemen who came to his residence.
The murderer fled the scene immediately after the incident, and the security authorities have arrested a number of his neighbors and Sheikhs to investigate the case.
