A former Al Qaeda-linked fighter dies under mysterious circumstances in HTS prisons

SOHR sources say that a young man from Sarmin town died today in Tahrir Al-Sham prisons.

Observatory sources added that the young man was a former member of al-Qaeda-linked “Dawood Brigade”, and he had been killed under torture, while cause of his death remained unclear.

ISIS-linked members and factions in Tahrir al-Sham prisons are badly treated. HTS are torturing them to death and applying Islamic Sharia sentencing laws (Hudud).

On April 19, SOHR sources reported that HTS executed a young man from Dara Izza in north-western rural Aleppo, on “various charges”, including blasphemy, insulting the God, having illegal relationships with women, drug use and attempting to return to regime-controlled areas as well as his loyalty to the regime.

SOHR local sources have confirmed that the young man had no connections to the regime and he wasn’t supporting it, while same sources added that his mobile phone was full of blasphemy and insults to the leader of “Tahrir Al-Sham” Organization “Abu Mohammed al-Joulani”.

HTS demanded the young man’s relatives pay $30,000 for his release, but has received no response.

The young man was arrested by HTS at Bab al-Hawa crossing in northern Idlib after searching his mobile phone after being deported by Turkish authorities several months ago.
