Lack of security | ISIS gunmen target muezzin and preacher of mosque in eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor
Deir Ezzor province: The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights activists in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor have reported that two gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire on the preacher and the muezzin of al-Rahman mosque in the town of al-Busayrah. This attack led to the injury of one of the attacked people and was taken to the hospital. The blame is pointed mainly at ISIS cells that are prevalent in SDF-held areas.
On May 12, SOHR sources reported that an SDF member sustained light wounds after unknown gunmen opened fire on him near the Cultural Centre in al-Busayrah city in eastern Deir Ezzor. After the attack, clashes erupted between the attackers and other SDF members, but no casualties were reported.
Separately, a security group of Syria Democratic Forces arrested a young man in his house in Hawaij village in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, taking him to an area near al-Shuhayl town and released him, after they had shot him at leg.
