Following latest events | Group of Intellectuals and activists issue statement demanding forming of committee to break up clashes between SDF and “Deir Ezzor Military Council Forces”

A group of Intellectuals and activists in Deir Ezzor issued a statement about the ongoing events in Deir Ezzor countryside and the clashes which erupted between Syrian Democratic Forces on one hand and tribesmen and “Deir Ezzor Military Council” on the other.

 

The Intellectuals and activists identified several demands, including forming a committee to defuse tension and solve the disputes between the two sides, restructuring the military and civil councils and appointing commanders from the region.

 

The group held SDF responsible for “Deir Ezzor Military Council” behaviour, as the formation belongs to SDF and operates under their command, and asked SDF to withdraw all forces which have recently been amassed in the region and send them back to their military bases.
