Deir Ezzor | Civilian stabs member of “SDF” and forces ki*ll and injure seven civilians

Deir Ezzor province: A fight took place between a civilian and a member of “SDF” near Euphrates River due to disputes between them, where the member was stabbed several times with a white weapon.

On the same context, SDF brought reinforcements and members opened fire killing two 14 year-old children and injuring five civilians, amid tension and clashes between the residents and members of “SDF” in Darnaj Town after the death of the children, while residents set fire to a vehicle of “SDF” in the town.

This comes in light of the security chaos within SDF-held areas.

On May 7, civilians attacked Al-Kesrah municipality building within SDF-held areas in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor, against the backdrop of the municipality confiscating wood for construction as they had built illegal houses. The attack resulted in the injury of the municipal guard, and the expulsion of the attackers by municipal employees and some neighbouring residents, amidst the ongoing tension state between both parties.
