Tribal clashes | One killed and others injured in SDF-held areas in Deir Ezzor and Al-Hasakah

SOHR activists have documented the injury of four tribesmen in armed clashes between cousins of Al-Mahasin tribe in Sarab village in Al-Shadadi countryside in Al-Hasakah province. The injured people were transferred to Al-Hasakah and Al-Shadadi’s hospitals, amid tension in the area.

This comes in light of an old dispute between Fakhz Al-Farg tribe and Al-Mae’ad tribe.

It is worth noting that the Internal Security Forces intervened and imposed security cordon to resolve the conflict.

On the other hand, SOHR activists documented the death of a civilian from Barsham village in tribal clashes, that erupted due to a revenge case between Al-Afif family and Al-Homs family of Al-Bakir tribe in Barsham village in the northern Deir Ezzor countryside.

On February 20, SOHR activists reported that a civilian was shot in the head, following clashes between Al-Mahasin and Al-Na’aim tribes in Al-Hariry village in Al-Shadadi town among SDF-held areas southern of Al-Hasakah.
According to reliable SOHR sources, clashes erupted due to disputes over electricity generator.
On the same context, young men of Al-Na’aim tribe raided the house of the generator owner, who is one of Al-Mahasin tribe, and burned the generator before fleeing to an unknown destination, amid tension in the region between both tribes. Residents are calling to end the disputes between both tribes.
