Civilian killed by unidentified gunmen in al Bseira city in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on December 21

A man from al Bseira city in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, named as Barakat Abdullah Muhammad al Nayef, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in the city on December 21, 2020. 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.
