BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – The recent uprising of Al-Bukhamiss tribesmen from the Syrian Euphrates town of Al-Mansura in southern Raqqa province has now seen a US-backed forces intelligence officer assassinated.
According to reports by EMN News, Saleh al-Muhimd, an intelligence officer within the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, was gunned down in the last 24 hours by unknown assailants near Al-Mansura.
EMN News has released footage which reportedly shows the corpse of Saleh al-Muhimd after it was discovered. Al-Masdar News cannot verify the legitimacy of the video – neither in terms of who recorded it nor what it purports to show.
Several days ago, Al-Bukhamiss tribesmen set fire to tires and blocked checkpoint areas controlled by US-backed forces in the town of Al-Mansura; some reports said the tribesmen were armed, other sources claimed they were demonstrating peacefully only to be fired upon by US-backed forces.
