The leadership of the national defense militia (NDF) in Deir Ezzor appointed “Mohammed al-Assaf” as the commander of the militia in the Al-Mayadeen city, according to Deir Ezzor 24 network correspondent.

The new commander came few days after Shakkur al-Assaf was assigned to lead the militia temporarily in Al-Mayadeen, the correspondent said.

Al-Assaf was appointed few weeks after the former commander of the NDF, Mohammed Tayseer al-Zahir, was killed along with a Russian officer in a landmine explosion during a joint tour of al-Mayadeen badiyah.

Al-Assaf’s history is full of crimes, robberies and drug trafficking.
