Civilian shot dead by unidentified gunmen in E. Deir Ez-Zour governorate on September 23

A man from al Bseira city in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, named as Eisa Nouri al Melhem, was shot dead on September 23, 2021 by unidentified gunmen in the city which is controlled by Syrian Democratic Forces. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses to obtain more details of the incident.

We condemn all attacks of this nature which target and kill civilians and call 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.
