Deir Ezzor | Gunshot fired from areas controlled by regime forces and Iranian-backed militias kills civilian in western countryside

Deir Ezzor province: A civilian was killed while fishing at Euphrates river near Al-Jininah town in the western countryside, when he was hit with a gunshot fired from areas controlled by regime forces and Iranian-backed militias.

 

Areas on the banks of Euphrates river experienced frequent incidents of exchange of fire between regime forces and their proxy militias on one hand, and Syrian Democratic Forces on the other, where some incidents left casualties, including civilians.

 

On February 14, SOHR sources reported that a 15-year-old child was killed after being shot by regime forces while trying to cross the Euphrates river towards Al-Qouriah town, which is controlled by regime forces and Iranian militias in Deir Ezzor countryside.
