Civilian shot dead by unknown gunmen in N. Deir Ez-Zour governorate on April 15

A man from al Tayyana village in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour suburbs, named as Ibrahim Khalil Ismail al Qahhar, was shot dead on April 15, 2021 by unidentified gunmen in Ghariba al Sharqiya village which is administratively a part of Soor district in the northern suburbs of the governorate, which is controlled by Syrian Democratic Forces. 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.
