Child shot dead by unknown gunmen in Badiya of Dreijik area in Hasaka suburbs on July 15

A 14-year-old boy from al Qahtaniya town in the northeastern suburbs of Hasaka governorate, named as Yamen Ayed al Tu’meh, was shot dead by unknown gunmen in Badiya of Dreijik area which is administratively a part of al Qahtaniya town on July 15. 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 implemented according to a strict timetable.
