Nearly 12 members of regime-backed “Al-Qatirji” militia escape to SDF-held areas

Reliable source informed SOHR that nearly 12 militiamen among “Al-Qatirji” of “25th Division” in Deir ez-Zor province escaped to SDF-held areas via Euphrates River, due to their fear of being killed on frontlines, following the reports about recent regime soldier’s fatalities on the frontlines in rural Aleppo and Idlib.

It is worth mentioning that “Al-Qatirji” militia was founded to protect the companies of pro-regime Syrian businessman known as “Al-Qatirji” and not involved in hostile actions, and had been joined by hundreds of people from Deir ez-Zor province. However, militia leaders violated the agreement, sending hundreds of them to the frontlines in Aleppo and Idlib.
