Local sources said that Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) Qasad militia patrol, supported by the warplanes of the International Coalition, raided the town of Abou Hardoub in the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor province on Tuesday.
The sources said the patrols destroyed four houses and abducted a number of civilians during this raid.
The sources also said that US occupation forces’ helicopters landed in al-Ezba village in Deir ez-Zor’s northern countryside, abducting a number of villagers.
In the southern countryside of Hassakeh province, local sources said that US occupation forces’ helicopters landed between al-Bassel Dam lake and al-Raml valley, and another landed in al-Hadaja village, which caused panic among locals due to the occupation forces’ firing of live ammo and their attempts to intimidate them to leave their work, clear the area, and remain at home. Two people were killed as a result.
Meanwhile, locals in al-Sabih Wa’arbaeen village south of Hassakeh organized protests against Qasad, prompted by the militias’ dismantling of a livestock market, with the locals blocking al-Khurafi road, which connects Hassakeh and Deir ez-Zor near the village’s bridge, and demanding that Qasad members leave the area.
