Growing tension | SDF member killed during security campaign to confiscate motorcycles in Deir Ezzor countryside

SOHR activists have reported that Al-Sour district in northern Deir Ezzor countryside is experiencing tension between “Al-Boufrio” tribe and SDF military patrols over the killing of a SDF member yesterday during a campaign carried out by a SDF to confiscate motorcycles after curfew time is up in Abu Al-Naytel village, north of Deir Ezzor.

This security campaign left four civilians, including a girl and a woman, injured.

According to Syrian Observatory sources, SDF patrols stormed Al-Sour district in an attempt to displace a number of members of Boufrio tribe, amid calls for the need for the intervention of notables and dignitaries in the area to prevent the deportation of civilians and to hold accountable those involved in the shooting incident.

Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that a woman, a little girl and two young men sustained various injuries, after being hit with indiscriminate gunshots fired by members of an SDF patrol in Abu Al-Naytal town in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor. According to SOHR sources, the patrol was chasing young men on a motorcycle in an attempt by SDF to confine the use of motorcycles in the town.

Meanwhile, the father of the little girl who was injured in this indiscriminate gunfire reacted by opening fire on the patrol, injuring an SDF member.
