DeirEzzor24 exclusive report:
Today, Fayez al-Nuri, one of the brutal arms of the Assad regime, died at the age of 80, after a struggle with illness. H served as a judge in the Supreme State Security Court, a position that allowed him to issue tens of thousands of death sentences and imprisonment for many years.
Al-Nouri comes from the city of Deir Ezzor, from the Al-Ubaid clan. He held the position of secretary of the party’s division, then secretary of the monastery branch, and later became a reserve member in the regional leadership, then deputy head of the Office of Higher Education and Scientific Research, as he was one of Rifaat al-Assad’s associates at the time.
Al-Nouri used his influence to invest in the field of oil services, and he remained so until the State Security Court was abolished during the start of the revolution, so he was referred to retirement, and his influence extends through his sons, as one of them established a faction linked to military security, to lead the campaign of Assad’s forces in Deir Ezzor.
Some describe him as Judge al-Atrash with a heavy tongue, after he was subjected to an assassination attempt, which affected his hearing and vision. One of them tells that when he was presented to him for trial, he read the names incorrectly, and did not distinguish between the accused, and soon he was absent and returned, issuing prison sentences for them without discussion.
