2 sisters’ bodies discovered in al Hawl IDP Camp in E. Hasaka on May 19

The bodies of two refugee Iraqi sisters, named as Raghad and Aalaa Atiyah Ahmad Saleh, born in 1989 and 1991 respectively, were discovered by local families in Section One of al Hawl IDP camp near al Hawl town in the eastern suburbs of Hasaka governorate on May 19, 2021, bearing signs of gunshot wounds.
Although the SNHR is unable to identify the party responsible for the woman’s killing, the area is controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces. Despite the controlling forces bearing responsibility for revealing the perpetrator’s identity, they have not launched any investigation, which increases the suspicion of their involvement in the killing.
