Assassinations of the notables and Sheikhs in Deir ez-Zor aimed at creating discord among the components of the region.
These assassinations are funded by parties aiming to destabilize the security and stability of the region, after the successes of the Syrian Democratic Forces and the Civil Administration in preserving popular gains.
In this regard, clans of southern of Al-Hasakah delivered a statement and condemned the strife that targeted the unity of the people and playing on the clans chord. The statement was read by notable of the Felityah al-Zubaidiyah clan, Muhammad Saeed al-Helou, in front of the council’s headquarters in al-Shaddadi district.
At the beginning, al-Helou denounced the assassinations and said, "In the name of the dignitaries and sheikhs of the Arab clans, we condemn and denounce assassinations of the dignitaries in Deir Ezzor, and offer our highest and warmest condolences to the martyrs who were caught by the hand of treachery. We wish a speedy recovery for the wounded."
He expressed his solidarity with all clans, and continued, "We stand today in solidarity with all the clans in all regions and offer a hand to them to eliminate criminal gangs and abroad-supported mercenaries."
He stressed that they encourage cohesion and close interdependence between all components of the Syrian people," We do not accept tampering with the security and stability of the region and warn the sheikhs, dignitaries and people of the region against this sedition to destroy the region and turn it into black ashes in which there is nothing but hatred is got. "
At the end, al-Helou said, "We are ready to stand all against what is happening in terms of sabotaging the infrastructure, and affirm that there is no difference between us and any component in Syria, without forgetting that what we have achieved is thanks to our martyrs. We urge our sons in the Syrian Democratic Forces to pursue the remnants of terrorism, and eliminate them. "
It is noteworthy that any clans in northeast of Syria issued statements condemning the operations aimed at creating discord and affirmed their support for the Syrian Democratic Forces and the Autonomous Administration.
