Syrian Civilians Attack US-Backed SDF in Deir Ezzur

Tens of people in the town of al-Basireh in Eastern Deir Ezzur attacked a military base of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Eastern Deir Ezzur, destroying the center after clashes, local sources reported on Thursday.

The sources said that the residents attacked the SDF positions after one of the civilians was killed under torture at an SDF prison in the town of al-Sabhah.

They added that two other civilians were also earlier killed by the SDF in the town of Sweidan Jazirah in Eastern Deir Ezzur, noting that the Kurdish forces detained and tortured under baseless accusations a large number of civilians in the regions under their occupation.

Sources had noted in June that several civilians were killed and wounded in SDF and US attack, and said that the entire regions under the SDF control in Hasaka and Deir Ezzur provinces were the scenes of popular protests against the presence of occupying forces there.

Meantime, the Arabic-language al-Khabour News Website reported that the SDF in Hasaka province prevented civilians from leaving the regions under their control for safe regions controlled by the Syrian Army.

The SDF fighters also asked for the payment of a sum of about 100,000 Syrian liras from any vehicle trying to leave the SDF-controlled region for Hasaka.
