U.S. Deputy Special Envoy to Syria Mr. David Brownstein, along with a number of U.S. military officials, toured areas of Deir Ezzor countryside, that are under SDF control east of the Euphrates, over the past two days.
During the tour, Brownstein met with military and civilian officials of Deir Ezzor. On March 15, he met Dr. Ghassan al-Yousef, the joint president of Deir Ezzor Civil Council, and discussed with him a number of topics and issues related to Deir Ezzor countryside (east of the Euphrates) and the region in general. On the top of the issues discussed were supporting Deir Ezzor and restoring stability in the region by all means. Brownstein emphasized the support for the civil administration, and renewed the confidence in the administration and the coming change in the region.
On the second day of his visit to Deir Ezzor, Brownstein met with Ahmed al-Khubel, the commander of Deir Ezzor Military Council, and Roni, an SDF leader, in Al-Bussairah city in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside. The meeting addressed the key issues related to the security and military situation of Deir Ezzor and the region as a whole. Brownstein stressed the need to establish security and stability in the region, and his country’s support for all the efforts leading to that.
During his visit to Deir Ezzor, Brownstein tried to bridge the distance between the people and political and military officials in Deir Ezzor. He denounced the incident of attacking Ash-Shahil Hospital by SDF members a few days ago, stressing that it is an unacceptable act as it targeted a hospital, which is a sacred place. He gave promises and assurances that no such incidents would be repeated.
U.S. Deputy Special Envoy to Syria Mr. David Brownstein’s visit to Deir Ezzor coincided with the 10th anniversary of the Syrian revolution, as the US Administration is holding regular meetings with Deir Ezzor’s military and civilian officials.
