Two civilians killed by a blast of an IED of unknown origin in al Bseira city in Deir Ez-Zour on February 20

At least two civilians were killed while five others were injured when an IED of unknown origin exploded in a local market in al Bseira city in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate on February 20, 2021. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses and survivors 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.
