Child killed by the blast of a grenade thrown by unidentified gunmen in Hasaka city on July 24

A 12-year-old child from Hasaka city, named as Names Malla al Hammad, was killed on July 24, 2021, by the explosion from a grenade thrown by unidentified gunmen at his family’s home in the city’s al Aziziya neighborhood, 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.
