Civilian killed by unidentified gunmen in W. Deir Ez-Zour governorate on August 16

A man, named as Muhammad Ibrahim al Soudan, from Jazaret Milaj village which is administratively a part of al Kesra town in the western suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, was shot dead on August 16, 2021, by unidentified gunmen in the village which is controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces.
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.
