Civilian died on February 18 due to wounds inflicted in a shooting by unknown gunmen in al Zer village in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs

A man from Tabiya Shamiya village in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour suburbs, named as Mahmoud al Abdullah, died on February 18, 2021 due to wounds sustained on February 9, 2021 in a shooting carried out by unidentified gunmen in al Zer village in the eastern suburbs of the governorate, which is controlled by SDF. 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 governing 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.
