A video clip reportedly shot in the countryside of Syria’s Deir al-Zour shows a leader of the so-called Kurdish militia leader executing a civilian in cold blood, Syrian activists have said.

The Kurdish militia leader has been identified as Zahid Hamad al-Abdullah and purportedly works with the Syrian Democratic Forces.

Activists say the killing reportedly took place in the town of Bahra on Monday in the eastern suburb of Deir al-Zour.

SDF released a statement on Tuesday saying it was shocked over the video and promised to launch an investigation into the case.
