Asayish Forces arrest ex-soldier of regime forces east of Al-Hasakah after refusing precautionary quarantine

Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) arrested an ex-soldier of regime forces in the eastern countryside of Al-Hasakah and put him into precautionary quarantine for suspicions of being infected with the novel coronavirus.

According to SOHR sources, the soldier was recently discharged from regime military service and returned to Al-Hasakah city, but he refused to enter two-week precautionary quarantine which pushed Asayish Forces to arrest him and force him undergo necessary tests. The tests showed slight increase of his body temperature, so the soldier and his family, five other persons, were put in quarantined in Radd Shaqraa village in the eastern countryside of Al-Hasakah on Monday evening.

On April 10, Reliable sources informed the Syrian Observatory that Kurdish forces placed a full quarantine on Um Al-Housh village in Al-Shahbaa area, north of Aleppo city, after a person had been confirmed infected with the novel coronavirus.

According to SOHR sources, the infected person was a regime soldier who, with the help of smugglers, sneaked to his village (Um Al-Housh) nearly three days after being discharged from military service following the Syrian government’s recent decrees.

“Many residents of the village have celebrated the soldier’s release from service and mingled with him. It was later found that the soldier was infected with the novel coronavirus and reliable reports have confirmed that at least five persons of those who mingled with him are also infected,” the sources added.

It is noteworthy that the village have been under partial curfew for a month, while Kurdish forces close the entrances of the village preventing the entry and exit of any person.
