Our people fleeing the areas of control of the regime and befor yesterday was attacked by a car bomb of mercenaries of ISIS, which led to the deaths of dozens of civilians and wounded others..
The military council of Deir al-Zour issued an official statement, which reads as follows:
Terrorism will not discourage us from our duty
As the campaign of the Asefat AL-Jazeera to liberate the Euphrates and the north of Deir al-Zour progresses, the terrorist attacks intensify and terrorize our civilian people fleeing from the areas of clashes, and our forces give them all the resources to evacuate them to the safe areas.
In the past period, during which our campaign, and the regime’s army attacks on neighborhoods and villages on the other side of the Euphrates River (Shamiya), tens of thousands of civilians from Deir al-Zour have been displaced to the areas we liberated, Terrorist organization, and our forces are doing everything they can to provide in the context of their moral duties to the displaced.
This displacement from the regions of the regime and the encouragement of our regions create an additional trend of systematic terrorism and direct targeting of them as displaced civilians, not only because they have chosen the safest and most respectful West Bank. In this context, a large procession of displaced persons in Deir al-Zour was subjected to a terrorist attack (October 12, 2017) at 6:30 am, and the car exploded directly among the displaced persons, killing more than twenty citizens, including women, children and sheikhs, and wounding dozens of others. Our forces took us to hospitals. Hassakeh for treatment.
At the same time, we condemn in the strongest terms these brutal attacks. We are grateful to the Shahid and wish the wounded a speedy recovery. We also affirm that these attacks will not deter us from carrying out our duties and we will continue to pursue terrorism wherever it may be.
Glory and immortality of martyrs
The speedy recovery of the injured
The shame for terrorism and its supporters
Military Council of Deir AL-Zour
