SDF Fighter Assassinated in Deir ez-Zor

ERBIL - Unidentified armed men on Saturday assassinated a fighter of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Syria's Deir ez-Zor, a monitor revealed.

The gunmen were on a motorbike when they opened fire at the SDF fighter in the town of al-Sabha in Deir ez-Zor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said in a statement.

No groups have yet claimed responsibility for the attack, while the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group remains highly suspected to be behind the incident.

A total of 584 fighters, civilians, oil companies workers, and officials in service parties have been killed "in the four provinces of Aleppo, Deir Ezzor, Al-Raqqah, and Al-Hasakah, in addition to the SDF-held area of Manbij in the north-east of Aleppo," the monitor noted.
