Al-Raqqa - SMART

A military source reported that unknown persons shot Ahmad al-Owies, the head of the Military Intelligence Service of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), to death between the cities of al-Raqqa and Ayn Issa, Northeastern Syria. The SDF are the military forces of the Kurdish Autonomous Administration in Northern Syria, founded in 2015.

The source, who preferred to stay anonymous, said that the shooting killed al-Owies instantly, and injured one of his four guards. The source added that unknown people on motorcycles shot al-Owies as he was passing near the village of al-Skeiro on the al-Raqqa-Tal Abyad road.

The SDF's commanders and media officers refused to give any information about the incident or the fate of al-Owies, amidst secrecy regarding such attacks against the fighters and commanders of the SDF.

The al-Raqqa governorate has been home to several attacks against SDF members and commanders, as the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) installed a new checkpoint in the al-Jazarah area city entrance, after night clashes between the YPG and unknown armed persons. The YPG is a predominantly International Coalition-supported Kurdish military faction that controls areas in al-Raqqa, al-Hasakah, and Aleppo,

On Friday, unknown persons shot an SDF member near the village of al-Hosiewah, Western al-Raqqa, killing him instantly, as clashes with unknown persons at the Sahlabiyah checkpoint injured another SDF member. Unknown persons and Islamic State members frequently target SDF members in the governorate.
