Rejecting SDF raid and arrest campaigns | Tension grows between SDF and Kubaysah tribe in villages and towns overlooking Al-Khabour river in Deir Ezzor countryside

SOHR activists have reported that members of Al-Kubaysah tribe have taken control of a SDF Military Council in Deir Ezzor near Al-Rai bridge in Al-Sabhah town, east of Deir Ezzor, and seized a military vehicle and some weapons.

Al-Kubaysah members have set fire to public facilities and SDF military posts in Basirah village, east of Deir Ezzor. The members of Al-Kubasyah have also deployed in the villages and towns overlooking Al-Khabour river, including Al-Basirah, Al-Sabha, Barshim, Harizeh and Al-Hijnah, in protest against raid campaigns and arrests

According to Syrian Observatory sources, the tension has arisen in the area due to carrying out arrests campaigns of a number of suspects by SDF patrols for sabotaging electrical transformers that operate water stations and attacking the irrigation canal in Al-Khabur in the village of Barshim and Harizeh, north of Deir Ezzor this morning

However, A number of detainees managed to escape and attack SDF checkpoints along with the rest of their Al-Kubaysah relatives.

Meanwhile, a group of dignitaries from Deir Ezzor countryside have gone to the house of SDF commander of Deir Ezzor Military Council to start negotiations to calm the situation in the villages in Khat Al-Khabur in the eastern and northern areas of Deir Ezzor.

This initiative by dignitaries comes in the wake of growing tension in the area and the killing of two SDF members this morning.

This morning, SOHR activists reported that SDF patrols raided the villages of Tawamiya, Harizeh and Barshim in Deir Ezzor countryside, searching for wanted persons.

There was an exchange of fire between the wanted men and SDF members of the SDF, killing two SDF members and wounding others.
