Activists posted a video on social networking sites (Twitter) from the countryside of Deir-ez-Zor, in which one person said that elements of the regime were burning the houses of members of al-Shuitat tribe who are not returning to their homes."
The photograph also shows the house of a civilian burning. Another person says that two members of the regime backed by Iran burned the house and fled. "Either you go home or the houses will be burned," he says.
On the other hand, sources said that there are very few civilians in the areas of Deir-ez-Zor countryside, which was controlled by the regime forces and Iranian militias, and the civilians exist there were forced to accept Shiite doctrine."
In this context, the sources added that regime's forces and Iran are making demographic changes in Deir-ez-Zor city and its countryside, where Shiites live instead of the indigenous citizens.
Al-Shuitat clan is considered the one of the largest tribes in the area, which was exposed to horrible massacres committed by Daesh mercenaries.
