gunmen shot and killed a woman and her husband in northern Deir Ez-Zour on September 24

Unidentified gunmen shot and killed Mrs. Hasna al Saleh and her husband Khalaf Mukhlef al Hussein, when they were near al Fadin Bridge in Teeb al Fal village in northern Deir Ez-Zour governorate, on September 24, 2022. The victims were from al Hajna village in the northern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate.

The area is controlled by 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.
