On Tuesday, Syrian media reported that scores of SDF militants were killed and wounded when an explosive device, planted by popular factions in the village of al-Takihi in Deir-ez-Zor northern countryside, went off.

Attacks continue on the movements and headquarters of the SDF militiamen within their areas of deployment with the support of the American occupation forces in the Syrian Jazeera, in response to the militia’s criminal practices aimed at restricting the residents and pushing them to join it or displacing them from their homes and areas.

Remarks by the Observer: The director of the media center of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) denied what was published by the SANA agency earlier this morning about his assassination in the al-Omar oil field in the eastern countryside of Deir-ez-Zor.

“The news is false and falls within the media war targeting the SDF and the Autonomous Administration,” Farhad Shami said

The denial came on the Deir-ez-Zor Military Council Forces official account on Facebook.
