Civilian shot dead by unknown gunmen in al Dahla village in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on July 31

The headman of al Dahla village which is administratively a part of al Bseira city in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, named as Ali Salman al Weis, was shot dead by unknown gunmen in the village on July 31, 2020. SNHR is still trying to contact 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.
