A number of FSA leaders held a meeting at al Nofous building in Deir Ez-Zour city on Wednesday noon, September 26, 2012, with a number of a civilian body that manages the civilian matters in Deir Ez-Zour city – known among residents as the Sharia Commission (al Hay’a al Shar’iya). However, the Syrian government learned of this meeting. Consequently, the building was bombed by MiG-23 warplanes with everyone inside, civilians and gunmen, with no prior or alert or demonstration of proportionality in the use of power to the military purpose.
The bombing resulted in the killing of most people who were inside, while the rest were wounded and died later of their wounds. The building was completely destroyed as well.
