Civilian shot dead by unknown gunmen in al Sabha village in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on July 23

A man from Barsham village which is administratively a part of al Bseira city in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, named as Khairallah Mekhlef al Sheikh, was shot dead by unknown gunmen in al Sabha village in the eastern suburbs of the governorate on July 23, 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.
