The SDF has released the names of its fighters who died in clashes against mercenary forces of the Syrian regime in Deir ez-Zor on Sunday.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) published the names of fighters killed in fighting in Deir ez-Zor on Sunday. The fallen are Demhat Qamişlo (Tamir Ahmed Ibrahim, born 1998 in Qamishlo), Baran Dêrik (Ciwan Remadan Murad, born 1999 in Dêrik) and Ezam Hesekê (Khaled Horan al-Etiye, born 1993 in Deir ez-Zor) . According to the information, they died in the village of Cerdob.

The SDF said in a statement: “When our forces responded to the attacks by the Syrian regime gangs in the east of Deir ez-Zor, three of our fighters died. Our forces foiled the attack and infiltration attempts aimed at destroying the security of the region.”

The three fallen fighters sacrificed their lives to stop the attackers, said the statement released by the SDF press office.

The SDF expressed its condolences to the families of the martrys and said: “We firmly believe that our forces are capable of destroying all plans and attacks against the region. Our comrades’ dreams of freedom and victory will be fulfilled.”

Clashes broke out after a coordinated attack by government mercenary troops in Damascus. The groups, armed with heavy artillery, mortars and rocket-propelled grenades, had attacked and attempted to infiltrate towns on the other side of the river from the western bank of the Euphrates in the autonomous region of Northern and Eastern Syria.

A mortar shell hit a residential building, killing four civilians and injuring 10 others. According to the SDF, 19 attackers were killed and twenty others were injured.

In Deir ez-Zor on the Syrian-Iraqi border there is currently increasing military tension between the US and Iran as a result of the war against Gaza.
