Civilian shot dead by unknown gunmen in al Sh-heil city in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on March 17

A man from al Sh-heil city in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, named as Thaiban Elwan Jasem al Ibrahim, was shot dead on March 17, 2021, by unidentified gunmen near the central park in the city’s center, 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.
