Civilian shot dead by unknown gunmen in Gharbiya Sharqiya village in Deir Ez-Zour on December 11

A man, named as Jalal Hsayyan Hamoud al Asaad, from Gharbiya Sharqiya village which is administratively a part of Soor town in the northern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in the village on December 11, 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.
