Armed individuals beheaded a child in eastern Deir Ez-Zour governorate on August 3

Zidan Ayesh al Fehaiman, a 17-year-old boy from al Basira city in eastern Deir Ez-Zour governorate, was beheaded with a sharp tool by unidentified armed individuals in Ebriha village adjacent to al Basira city, on August 3, 2022. The region is under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces. SNHR is still trying to reach eyewitnesses to obtain more details of the incident.

SNHR condemns all killings of civilians and calls on controlling forces to assume their responsibility for protecting the civilian population in areas under their control and to launch an investigation into this incident and reveal its conclusions to the public.

There will be no stability in Syria without a genuine political process moving towards democracy, implemented according to a set timetable.
