Idlib Province – The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights learned from reliable sources that Hayyaat Tahrir Al-Sham has arrested a group of people of those who have been deported by the Turkish authorities in the frame of Turkey’s latest campaign against the Syrian refugees in Turkey, where the group was arrested while entering to the Syrian territory, then they were released except a Christian young man from Al-Salamiyeh city in Hama countryside, where he was taken to unknown destination.

And the SOHR published on the 17th of July 2019, that several Turkish states have been witnessing for several days a significant restriction on Syrian refugees who are present there by the Turkish security forces, where deportations are carried out for every person who does not have the temporary protection card ” Kimlik” towards the Syrian territory to the areas that are controlled by the factions and the jihadi groups in the Syrian north, also anyone who owns a temporary protection card but resides in a state other than the one that issued the “Kimlik” is deported towards that state, where these restrictions are concentrated mainly in Istanbul and other states south of Turkey, and the Syrian Observatory learned from several intersected sources that the Turkish authorities in the past few days has arbitrarily deported more than 140 Syrians to the Syrian territory, including people who have a temporary protection card for a state other than their residents, they have been deported to Syria and not to the state from which the card was issued, after being treated badly by the security forces and imprisoned for several days, in addition to being forced to sign papers stating that they want to be deported and that if they did not sign then their fate will be the detention until they sign the voluntary deportation papers.

We at the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, call on the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to intervene immediately and stop the forced deportation carried out by some members of the security forces against people who have a temporary protection card and people who do not have it, as there are people who have been deported who oppose the Syrian regime and the jihadist groups who are spread in Idlib province, and other areas controlled by the factions, amid an unknown fate pursue them and fears of being arrested by the jihadists.
