Fathi Aun, the head of the Support Force for the Security Directorates in the western and southern region, a.k.a the 200th Committee, was killed on Thursday after being shot in the city of Zintan.

A source in Zintan said gunmen fired a barrage of bullets at Aun in the center of the town just before Maghreb prayer.

Zintan Council of Elders called for the urgent punishment of the killers of Fathi Aun, saying that those who defend or conceal the crime of the killers or justify their actions are considered accomplices in all crimes committed.

The Zintan 200th Committee is responsible for solving security problems and social issues in the town, especially murder cases and fighting trade of drugs and alcohol.
