On Sept. 12, SOHR activists reported that members of al-Hamza Division (al-Hamzat) assaulted a member of the Military police, after a fight erupted between armed men from Deir Ezzor working for al-Hamza Division and an armed man from Homs city working for the Military Police.
After the fight, the Military Police brought in military reinforcement comprising militiamen of al-Jabha al-Shamiyah and al-Sultan Murad and arrested several gunmen from Deir Ezzor. Al-Hamzat reacted to the arrest of the gunmen by bringing military in reinforcement to al-Bab city, amid growing tension and a state of alert in al-Bab city.
On the other hand, unknown gunmen in a black vehicle kidnapped a young man from the covered market in al-Bab city.
