Deir Ezzor security chaos | Unidentified gunmen attack house of SDF commander, while others clash with fighters

Deir Ezzor province: SOHR activists have reported that unidentified gunmen in a car opened machinegun fire on the house of an SDF commander in Theban district in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside, injuring him lightly.

On the same context, clashes with machineguns erupted between unknown assailants and SDF members, before the attackers escaped.

This development comes in light of the ongoing security chaos across Syria since early 2022.

On December 19, SOHR sources reported that an SDF fighter was killed and two others were injured, after being shot by unknown gunmen, believed to be of ISIS cells, near Hajin hospital in Deir Ezzor countryside.

Meanwhile, SDF cordoned off the area where the attack took place and set several checkpoints inside the city.
