Civilian shot dead by unknown gunmen in Ghranij city in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on June 11

A man named as Khalifah De’ar al Khlief, from Ghranij city which is administratively a part of al Sh’aitat area in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, was shot dead by unknown gunmen near the town’s main water tank in al Sema’a neighborhood in the city on June 11, 2020. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses to obtain more details of the incident.

SNHR condemns all attacks of this nature which target and kill civilians, and calls on the governing forces in each area to bear responsibility for protecting civilians in the areas under their control, and to conduct investigations into all such incidents and reveal their findings to the public. Stability will not be achieved in Syria without achieving a political transition towards democracy implemented according to a strict timetable.
