Al-Faraj offered condolences to all Arab clans, describing the assassination of Sheikh Al-Hafel as the great loss for the region. The dark forces managed to assassinate Sheikh Hafel, betting on their ability to blow up the social fabric and fraternal bonds between Arab clans in the region. This is what every messy hand aspires to strike at the stability of the region by repeatedly targeting clan leaders and their elders.

We as the clans of Al-Raqqa, affirm our support for the SDF and strive to uncover the truth of this cowardly act. ".
In the conclusion of his speech, Al-Faraj called on all Arab clans in Deir ez-Zor, Al-Raqqa and Al-Hasakah to rally around the Syrian Democratic Forces and support them to uproot the roots of terrorism and cut off the hands that tamper with the security of northeast of Syria.
