111th crime in 2022 | Residents find body of a man over his house’s roof in Deir Ezzor

Deir Ezzor province: SOHR activists have monitored a new crime within regime-held areas, where the body of a man was found killed by several gunshots over the roof of his house in Deir Ezzor city, in a theft operation.

According to reliable SOHR sources, three people sneaked into the house of the victim at night, stole 5,000,000 Syrian Liras and opened fire on the victim, killing him. Meanwhile, the local authorities in Al-Mayadin area arrested the perpetrators.

This comes in light of the increasing crime rate in different areas of Syria.
