The seven White Helmets were killed at close range early on Saturday morning
"The civil defense center in Sarmin was the target of an armed attack by unknown assailants in which seven volunteers were killed", the White Helmets said in a statement.
The first responders, commonly known as the White Helmets, operate in rebel-control territory and have frequently been targeted by regime forces.
UOSSM call on all concerned parties, the worldwide community, and human rights organizations to conduct a full investigation into this heinous crime.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the seven volunteers had all been killed by bullets to the head. The targeting of aid workers is a clear violation of International Humanitarian Law, UOSSM calls on the international community to protect aid workers and prosecute perpetrators to full extent. The White Helmets emerged in 2013, working to rescue civilians in rebel-held areas.
Sarmin is controlled by the Hayat Tahrir al Sham jihadist alliance, which was formed when the Nusra Front merged with other groups.
