One to two men were reportedly killed and up to two other men were reportedly injured on February 22nd 2023 in Jaded Akidat, Deir Ezzor, Syria, as a result of a US-led Coalition backed SDF / QSD militia air raid. The air drop happened “after midnight.” Euphrates Post reported that the two injured men were civilians named Diaa al-Barghash and Tareq al-Rashou, who were wounded by bullets during the raid.
The man who was reportedly killed was identified as Fadi Rafi Al-Daoud, whose house was also targeted, but it is unclear whether he is a member or associated with ISIS in any way. Various sources report him as a “civilian”, but others, including @humam__isa tweeted that he was arrested “on charges of belonging to ISIS.”
Al Arab and Al Modon both indicated that two men were killed in the raid, who were “likely to be members of the ISIS organisation” and that they were “armed.”
Deir Ezzor 24 reportedly the incident slightly differently. It said that “the force raided a house near the house of Fadi Rafi Al-Daoud so that the owner of the raided house fled with Fadi from their homes, and the Internatinal Coalition pusued them near the Euphrates River by means of drones and police dogs.”
SANA reported that the house was searched, whilst the owner was killed and two others were wounded. It wrote that “the militia kidnapped the two injured persons along with three other citizens and transferred them to one of its military heaquarters in the area.” These reports differ from source to source, as Deir Ezzor 24 reported, alongside the death of Al-Daoud, the arrest of “another person”, and the injury of Diaa al-Barghash and Tareq al-Rashou, while those that were arrested were identified as Moayad Al-Hammadi and Ayham Al-Shaheen. It is unclear as to whether they are members of the Islamic State or cells.
The incident occured at approximately 12:00 am local time.
