According to Syrian Observatory activists, the reason for the dispute was the attempt by a member of Al-Bakara tribe from Deir Ezzor and lives in Khirbet Ward village to regains ownership of a house he had sold to a person earlier.

The dispute developed after his relatives intervened, leaving ten people injured. The wounded people were taken to the hospital for treatment.

The Syrian regime security services arrested a number of those involved in the dispute.

It is worth noting that many families of Al-Bakara tribe from Deir Ezzor province live in Al-Sayyida Zainab area, one of the most important strongholds of Iranian-backed militias in Rif Dimashq.
