During fight among young men | Young man stabbed to death in town in eastern Deir Ezzor countryside

Deir Ezzor province: A young man was stabbed several times to death with a knife during a fight among young men in the SDF-held town of Al-Bahrah in eastern Deir Ezzor countryside. The fight, in which bladed weapons were used, followed disputes among the young men.


This comes in light of ongoing security chaos in SDF-held area.


The Syrian Observatory has documented 60 murder crimes in SDF-controlled areas since early 2024, where domestic violence and armed robbery were behind some of these murders, while motivations behind the others remained unknown.
