One of the dignitaries of al-Akidat tribe and his son were martyred when they were gunned down by unknown persons in Hawaij Theban village in Deir ez-Zor’s eastern countryside, which is under the control of the US occupation-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia.
Local sources told SANA’s reporter that unidentified persons riding a motorbike opened fire on Sheikh Atilyoush al-Shatat, one of the dignitaries of al-Akidat tribe in Hawaij Theban village, killing him and his son.
The US occupation-backed SDF militia has liquidated a number of national figures and tribal leaders such as targeting Sheikh Matshar al-Hafl, who was assassinated by SDF militants in broad daylight last September.
