Deir Ezzor, SANA-Qasd militias, supported by the US occupation, continued on Tuesday acts of abduction and torture, looting and setting fire to the crops of civilians in the regions they are poisoned in.

Civil and media sources said that members of Qasd militia launched an arrest campaign in a number of Deir Ezzor villages, besieging, under support of the US-led coalition warplanes, al-Tayaneh town to the south-east side of al-Mayadeen and storming it amid heavy fires.

The sources affirmed that the militias arrested nearly 100 citizens from the town.

Meanwhile, the sources said that groups from the heavily-armed Qasd, , stormed Shwehan village to the north of Deir Ezzor, arresting 11 persons amid a state of fear among the families.

The reason behind the arrest campaign was the families’ rejection to hand over their crops of wheat and barley to the US-backed militias, according to the sources.
