The Women's News Agency (NUJINHA) reported that three women were killed and other truffle pickers were injured in the desert of Deir ez-Zor, by unidentified gunmen, yesterday, Wednesday (March 13).

The agency said, quoting its correspondent in Deir ez-Zor, that the three women are from the Tabab al-Joura neighborhood in the Deir ez-Zor desert, and their bodies are still in the Al-Bishri desert, southwest of the city.

This came less than a week after a similar attack targeted truffle collectors in the Kabajib desert in the Deir ez-Zor countryside, resulting in the killing of 18 people, the injury of 16 others, and the loss of about 50 people, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
