On 17 December 2022, the bodies of two women were brought into the al-Suwar General Hospital in the al-Suwar district, administratively affiliated with Deir ez-Zor province.

The bodies are of Izdihar Nabil Muhanna and her brother’s wife Najlaa Abdulkarim Ftaih, who both hail from Hawaij Bomasa’a village in the western countryside of Deir ez-Zor.

The hospital report demonstrates that the two women were tortured and ill-treated before they were shot in the head and killed. Additionally, accounts from the area say that the women were victims of a brutal murder motivated by revenge.

The perpetrators killed the women in retaliation to actions attributed to a male cousin. Armed individuals were after the cousin for what he had done and killed the two women when he escaped them into the areas controlled by the Syrian government.

Considering the brutality practiced against these women, the undersigned organizations condemn the use of civilians and women as tools for settling scores and reprisal. Additionally, the organizations call on concerned parties to prevent the use of this heinous crime to fuel tribal disputes, expand the cycle of violence, or disrupt stability in the area.

Moreover, the undersigned organizations demand that the Autonomous Administration and Syrian Democratic Forces:

  • Order concerned authorities to start a transparent, independent, and extensive investigation into the murder of Izdihar and Najlaa.
  • Bring the perpetrators to justice and hold accountable all persons involved in this horrific crime, whatever their military affiliation.
