The source explained al-Hamadeh used to be head of al-Bakeer Clan committee in Akidat Tribe and the spokesman of the tribe as well. No authority has claimed responsibility for the assassination so far. Indications point accusations against ISIS cells deployed in the area.

SDF had already carried out a security campaign with the help of international coalition, claiming to track ISIS cells in Deir Ezzur eastern countryside. However, assassinations and insecurity have still been prevalent.
