After threats in 2018 | ISIS executes two female officials in the Autonomous Administration in southern Al-Hasakah
Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that the two local officials, who were found dead today in Al-Dashisha town in the southern countryside of Al-Hasakah, had been threatened of killing by ISIS cells when the region was under the control of ISIS before it was expelled by SDF and the International Coalition in June 2018. However, ISIS cells returned today to carry out their threat and executed the two female officials.
Observatory for activists monitored earlier today a new assassination in the SDF-held areas in north-eastern Syria, where two bodies were found in the town of Al-Dashisha in the southern countryside of Al-Hasakah.
The bodies belonged to two women, one of whom was the head of the “Civil Council” in the municipality of Tel Al-Ashayer, south of Al-Hasakah, while the other was the “economic official” in the same municipality. The two women were kidnapped by unknown gunmen a few hours before they were found dead in Al-Dashisha.
As more fatalities are recorded and updated regularly, the number of people who were killed in areas within the four provinces of Aleppo, Deir Ezzor, Al-Raqqah and Al-Hasakah, in addition to the SDF-held area of Manbij in the north-east of Aleppo rose to 656 fighters, civilians, oil workers, and officials in service parties.
The Syrian Observatory documented the assassination of 234 civilians including 17 children and 11 women by armed cells in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, al-Hasakah countryside, al-Raqqah city and countryside, and Manbij area. In addition, 418 SDF fighters, including local leaders, were assassinated in the same areas.
Also, four members of International Coalition were killed. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights Human also documented tens of injuries due to these assassinations.
