ISIS resurgence | Unknown gunmen assassinate SDF member in Deir ez-Zor countryside
Deir ez-Zor Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
SOHR sources say that unidentified gunmen opened fire on a member of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) from the town of Hatla today, north of Deir ez-Zor, in the town of Mohimida in western countryside of Deir ez-Zor, killing him.
This comes in light of security chaos and ISIS cells’ activities in SDF-held areas.
Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that unknown gunmen travelling in a van opened machinegun fire on a civilian and his wife in Theban town in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.
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 665 fighters, civilians, oil workers, and officials in service parties.
The Syrian Observatory documented the assassination of 240 civilians including 17 children and 12 women by armed cells in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, al-Hasakah countryside, al-Raqqah city and countryside, and Manbij area. In addition, 420 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.
