Three Civilians Killed by Qasad Militia at a Protest

Three citizens were killed in an attack by the US-backed Qasad militia, who opened fire during a protest held in al-Daman village, which was condemning the militia’s practices in the northern Deir ez-Zor countryside.

Sources indicated that the protests were calling for the expulsions of the Qasad militia from the area, as well as from al-Basira city, the village of al-Azba in the northeastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor. They accuse the group of spreading chaos, kidnappings, killings and the having a monopoly on oil with the companies that deal with them.

The protesters cut off the main roads in the area and closed their shops amid a general strike in the town of al-Basira and the village of al-Azba, renewing their demands for the militia to leave.
