Security Chaos in SDF-held areas | Six people killed and injured in family armed feud in Dier Ezzor countryside

Deir Ezzor province: SOHR activists have reported that one SDF member was among two people killed in a family armed feud while four others injured, due to an old vendetta which was renewed in al-Muwailah village in Dier Ezzor countryside.

According to sources, the armed clashes erupted between the two families this morning in Abu al-Naital in northern Dier Ezzor, while SDF interfered and stopped the fighting without any casualties on either side.

With the alarming prevalence of unlicensed firearms throughout Syria, family and tribal fights have been escalated, leaving large number of casualties every time.

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 805 fighters, civilians, oil workers, and officials in service parties.

The Syrian Observatory documented the assassination of 292 civilians including 18 children and 15 women by armed cells in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, al-Hasakah countryside, al-Raqqah city and countryside, and Manbij area. In addition, 509 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.
