With “Humanitarian and Security” operation | SDF member killed in an attack on checkpoint in Deir Ezzor

Deir Ezzor province: SOHR activists have documented the death of an SDF member in an attack by unidentified gunmen, believed to be ISIS members, on a checkpoint in Abriha village eastern of Deir Ezzor.

The assassinations escalated in SDF-held areas, coinciding with the launch of the “Humanitarian and Security” operation targeting ISIS members in Al-Hawl camp.

Earlier today, SOHR activists documented the death of two members of internal security forces After being shot by a prisoner at a hospital in Manbij city in eastern Aleppo countryside.

According to SOHR sources, the prisoner pretended to be ill to be taken to the hospital for treatment.

After entering the hospital, the prisoner seized the weapon of an Asayish guard and shot him, killing two members instantly, and then he escaped.

On September 11, reliable SOHR sources confirmed that ISIS executed six SDF fighters, after having kidnapped them near Ruwayshid village in the northern countryside of Deir Ezzor. The SDF fighters were kidnapped and taken to a remote area where the field execution was carried out, before ISIS members dumped their bodies near Al-Kherafi highway.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the operation, stating that his attack came as a response to the ongoing security campaign dubbed “Humanity and Security” campaign, which was launched by the Internal Security Forces in Al-Hawl camp in late August.

SOHR has documented 131 operations carried out by ISIS, including armed attacks and explosions, in areas under the control of the Autonomous Administration since early 2022. According to SOHR statistics, these operations left 105 persons dead: 37 civilians, including a woman and a child, and 68 members of SDF, the Internal Security Forces and other military formations operating in areas under the control of the Autonomous Administration.

It is worth noting that these attacks have not included the operation of Ghuwayran prison, which left heavy losses.
