Protests against SDF in Deir Ezzor renewed
Protests renew for the fourth day in Deir Ezzor, Syria, over the SDF's practices against local figures and officials.
Protests have renewed for the fourth day in Deir Ezzor, Syria, against the practices of the US-backed SDF armed groups.
Protestors gathered in the city, blocking the main roads that link all parts of the countryside and to Al-Hasakah and Al-Raqqa.
The demonstrators called for firing several figures from the Kurdish Workers' Party who are controlling the region, demanding they be provided with bread and diesel. They also condemned the stances of SDF supports, calling on them to stand with the people and pressure the SDF leadership to realize these demands.
Armed coordinators confirmed that SDF patrols attacked demonstrators in the Deir Ezzor countryside in an attempt to impede their demonstrations, leading to injuries among protestors.
Protests had erupted in the region when a PKK official forced a local official to practice nepotism by making him put someone related to him in charge of petrol energy supplies in the region.
The countryside of Deir Ezzor has been undergoing recurring demonstrations as the locals accuse the Autonomous Administration of stealing oil and gas, forcibly controlling the region, and not granting the Arab tribes any authority.
The residents of Deir Ezzor protested Wednesday against SDF due to the latter's oppression of civilians and not fulfilling their demands.
