A man, identified as Jbeir Kamel al-Iwwyed from Abu Hamam town in eastern Deir Ez-Zour governorate, was shot dead on November 9, 2023, by gunmen we have not yet been able to identify in front of his home in al-Hawija area in Sbaikhan town in eastern Deir Ez-Zour governorate.
The area is under the control of Syrian regime forces. The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) is still trying to locate eyewitnesses to obtain more information about the incident. We call on the controlling forces to uphold their responsibilities for protecting civilians in their areas, to investigate this incident, and to make the findings of the investigation known to the public. Syria will never have true stability without a genuine political transition process towards democracy within a fixed timetable.
