Girl shot dead by unidentified gunmen in N. Deir Ez-Zour governorate on August 30

A girl from al Humar village in the northern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour, named as Saba Mahmoud al Sheikh Hamdan, was shot dead on August 30 by unidentified gunmen during an attack on her family’s home in the village which is controlled by Syrian Democratic Forces.
SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses and survivors 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.
