Security chaos in Al-Hawl camp: Iraqi refugee and his wife injured in knife attack

Al-Hasaka governorate – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:

Security chaos in Al-Hawl camp in eastern countryside of Al-Hasaka, is escalating significantly as the rate of crimes increased.

Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that an Iraqi refugee and his wife were stabbed with a sharp object by unknown assailants, in the first sector of Al-Hawl camp. The attack left the man’s right shoulder injured while his wife was injured in the right forearm.

The man and his wife were taken to the Kurdish Red Crescent centre in the camp for treatment, while the Internal Security Forces (Asayesh) arrested a number of suspects and are now under investigation.

On April 12, SOHR activists documented the killing of two members of the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) of those guarding Al-Hawl camp, after being shot by ISIS cells on the road to Al-Dashishah in the southern countryside of Al-Hasakah yesterday afternoon.

This incident comes after foiling an operation for helping nine Turkish women of ISIS families to escape with other nine children, from Al-Hawl camp in the eastern countryside of Al-Hasakah.

According to SOHR sources, the women and children were hidden in water tanks affiliated to the Syrian Arab Red Crescent in the camp, to be transported later aboard a truck out of the camp. The driver was arrested on Saturday morning.
