The report highlights the seizure of SDF members in the Deir Ezzor held areas on civilians’ houses and public institutions that were turned into headquarters. SDF seized houses, post office, and water pumping stations that some of them were ISIS military headquarters, and others were empty as the owners were displaced.
Most of these houses and institutions that were turned into headquarters for SDF are located in areas resided by civilians, the fact that exposes those civilians to the danger of frequent armed attacks.
SDF rejected to return the seized houses to their original owners, and also refused to leave the headquarters located in civilian areas.
Most witnesses who were interviewed by JFL said that the seized houses and headquarters play no military role for SDF, but it causes danger to the civilians.
