Civil activists pointed out that despite assassinating prominent figures such as Hisham Al-Hashemi, Tahseen Al-Shahmani, and Reham Yaqoub, no official investigation has induced any arrests of suspects. Survivors of the murdering attempts indicated that they have been threatened by pro-Iran militias. It is worth mentioning that the UN has charged an armed group with orchestrating the kidnapping and assassinating campaign that targeted activists
