Protesting unfair distribution of bread and mistreatment | Locals close bakery in eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor

Deir ez-Zor governorate – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:

Reliable sources have told the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that a number of residents cut off the highway in Theban town in Deir ez-Zor countryside, and closed the al-Jazeera bakery after expelling its workers due to the unfair distribution of bread and the mistreatment of residents by the bakery’s workers.

In January, reliable sources told SOHR that officials in charge of schools in Al-Sha’fa town in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, which is affiliated with the educational centre of Al-Sha’fa, suspended work in these schools until the cancellation of Self-Protection’s decision imposing compulsory conscription on teachers and employees.

Observatory activists monitored students and their parents holding a vigil in front of a school in Abu Hamam town in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, expressing rejection of ongoing deployment of Syria Democratic Forces in the school which SDF turned into military headquarters, although the students were still studying in the school. The residents also called upon the International Coalition to force SDF to get out the school.

On January 9, Observatory sources monitored a new demonstration by dozens of residents in Abu Hamam town in eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, calling on the SDF to cancel mandatory conscription and fight corruption in the institutions of the “Autonomous Administration”.
