Civilian shot dead by unknown gunmen in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on June 19

A man named as Muhammad Mekhelef al Kdeishah was shot dead by unknown gunmen in al Jarthi village in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate on June 19, 2020. SNHR is still trying to contact with witnesses to obtain more 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.
