A young man, Ahmed al-Attiyah, was killed and others injured by shells in an attack allegedly perpetrated by the SDF during the early morning of September 3rd, 2023 in the city of Al-Basira, in the Deir Ezzor eastern countryside. Sources are conflicted as to whether Ahmed was a civilian or a militant with the tribal clans.
Naher Media identified the young man, and claimed he had been killed while the SDF “stormed” Al-Basira. Although the identities of other civilians are not known, local reporters (@Sharqya-reporte; @Aboody_hat) claimed the attack wounded several.
Al-Khabour correspondent (@alkhabour21) alleged the injuries stemmed from an explosive shell thrown from a drone and that al-Attiyah and one other had been on the banks of the Euphrates River when the attack occurred.
Local source (@alsuory0) alleged the SDF perpetrated a missile attack that struck a building which al-Attiyah had been helping to fortify. The building is said to be located in the Hawija region. A second local source alleged al-Attiya was a fighter with the tribal clans, though this claim has not been repeated elsewhere.
The incident occured in the morning.
