Family dispute | Woman ki-lled and her brother injured in Deir Ezzor countryside

Deir Ezzor province: Syrian Observatory activists have reported that a family quarrel has erupted between two brothers of Al-Bakir Al-Rakiwat tribes in Al-Wadouda in the northern countryside of Deir Ezzor yesterday over a dispute on agricultural land. The quarrel has evolved to the use of light and medium weapons. These clashes left a woman dead and her brother injured.

This comes in light of security chaos and arms proliferation in SDF-held areas.

On November 20, SOHR activists documented the death of a young man and the injury of four others with stray bullets, following renewed armed clashes for revenge between two families of Al-Shoaitat tribe, in Al-Mahmida neighbourhood in Abo Hamam town eastern of Deir Ezzor. This came in light of the ongoing security chaos and widespread of weapons within SDF-held areas.

On November 16, SOHR activists documented the death of a civilian in eastern Deir Ezzor countryside over a vendetta between the two families in Abu Hamam town, east of Deir Ezzor. This came in light of chaos and weapon proliferation in SDF-held areas.

Tribal fighting broke out between the residents of Shanan village and the residents of Drang village in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, after a group of a leader of Najras tribe blocked the road to a young man and his mother in Al-Shanan town, and fired at his car.

The leader of Al-Nerjes tribe, known by his initials as A. N. seized and broke a number of vehicles owned by the residents of Al-Shanan village under the pretext of smuggling diesel into areas controlled by regime via river crossings. This developed into armed clashes and banditry. No casualties were reported. The people call for dignitaries and tribal sheikhs to intervene and resolve the conflict.
