Two civilians were killed by unidentified gunmen in al Bseira city in Deir Ez-Zour on January 11

A special needs person, named as Ahmad al Elwan, and another man, named as Me’raj al Ahmad, were shot dead by gunfire from unidentified gunmen in the center of al Bseira city in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on January 11, 2021. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses to obtain more details of the incident.
SNHR condemns all attacks of this nature which target and kill civilians and calls on the controlling forces in each area to bear responsibility for protecting civilians in the areas under their control, and to conduct investigations into all such incidents 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.
