The mayor of Julis, Salman Amar, is suspected of the shooting death of Munir Labouani, a 45 year-old contractor, in the front of the council building.

Taeed Quas, an emergency medical technician with MDA who treated the victim said, "A unconscious man was lying near the city council building suffering from a gunshot wound and bleeding in his upper body. We gave him medical treatment, which included stopping the bleeding and resuscitation, but the wound was too severe, and we were forced to pronounce him dead shortly after."
