Civilian’s body discovered in E. Deir Ez-Zour governorate on August 18

A man from al Baghouz town in the east of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, named as Abdullah al Ghallab, went missing on August 14, 2021, as he was passing through al Sarah neighborhood in al Sousa town in the eastern suburbs of the governorate. On August 18, 2021, his body was discovered in the Badiya (desert area) of al Sousa town bearing signs of torture and gunshot wounds.
Although the SNHR is unable to identify the party responsible for the civilian’s killing, the area is controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces. Despite the controlling forces bearing responsibility for revealing the perpetrator’s identity, they have not launched any investigation which increases the suspicion of their involvement in the killing.
