Civilian shot dead by unknown gunmen in al Hawayej village in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on June 15

Abdul Mun’em al Mashhour from al Tayba village, which is administratively a part of al Mayadeen city in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, was shot dead by unknown gunmen in al Hawayej village, also in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, on June 15, 2020. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses to obtain details of the incident.

SNHR condemns all killings which target 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 and reveal their findings to the public. Stability will not be achieved in Syria without achieving a political transition towards democracy and the rule of law, implemented according to a strict timetable.
