Local gunmen attack checkpoint | SDF imposes curfew in Deir Ezzor countryside

Deir Ezzor province: Local gunmen attacked a checkpoint of SDF with machineguns in Al-Kabr Town in western Deir Ezzor countryside. However, no casualties were reported.

These attacks come under instructions by the Lebanese Hezbollah and Iranian militias to cause chaos in SDF-held areas using local gunmen led by “Ibrahim Al-Hafl” the dignitary of Al-Okaidat Tribe.

On the same context, members of a military patrol of SDF informed residents of Al-Shahil Town in Deir Ezzor countryside of the imposition of curfew for motorbikes until the morning.

On April 17, local gunmen attacked a military headquarters of SDF with RPGs, in Jabal Al-Basyrah in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, which led to the eruption of armed clashes between the two sides, during which machineguns were used. However, no causalities were reported.
