Druze youths studying at a Latakia university were severely beaten in a sectarian attack reportedly spurred by Druze opposition to the regime’s mandatory military service

“A number of Suweida youth were severely beaten by a group of attackers calling themselves the ‘Shabiha of the Coast’,” the pro-opposition Siraj Press reported Friday.

Several anti-regime media outlets covered the attack, which happened in Teshrin University’s Technical Institute for Veterinary Studies in the southern Latakia suburb of Sanawbar.
