New clashes in the Deir-Zor area increase the civilian death toll.

Sources from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a UK-based monitoring group whose aim is to report human rights violations and abuses in Syria, recently reported a new attack in the town of Al-Sour, in the northern countryside of Deir ez-Zor. More in detail, one civilian and three members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), namely members of the tribes, were killed in a tribal clash. 17 people were also injured in the attack.

As reported by SOHR’s reliable sources, the clash involved two groups, namely “Al-Boamair” and “Al-Kassar”, in Al-Suwar town. As a result, two armed men (one of each group) died, along with a third casualty from “Al-Mushahdah” tribe. Violence escalated and several members of the SDF engaged in the fight, with many tribe members being injured. Attempts to break up the clashes were made by the SDF.

Unfortunately, incidents with civilian casualties happen very frequently, especially in the region of Deir ez-Zor, as evidenced by our recent artlicle.
