Civilian killed by unidentified gunmen in E. Deir Ez-Zour governorate on June 20

A man from Theyban town in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, named as Ahmad Awwad al Akleh, was shot dead on June 20, 2021, by unidentified gunmen in Badiya (desert area) of the town, 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.
