Al-Suwaidaa | Popular anger grows over regime arrest of demonstrators
Al-Suwaidaa Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: Popular discontent is growing in Al-Suwaidaa city as regime security services continue to detain anti-regime demonstrators who were arrested a few weeks ago.
Despite the release of some demonstrators, with the mediation of Al-Aql elders in Al-Suwaidaa, regime security services refuse to release many demonstrators for “passing their date of joining the mandatory service” and intend to drive them to military service in the ranks of the regime army.
SOHR sources reported earlier this month that the regime’s security services released three young men from Al-Suwaidaa, who were arrested in anti-regime demonstrations during June. The young people were released after mediation by “al-Aql” elders.
On June 15, reliable SOHR sources confirmed that regime security services arrested more than ten demonstrators after participating in an anti-regime demonstration in Al-Suwaidaa city. Meanwhile, tension and security alertness were on the rise as the anti-regime demonstration was attacked by regime loyalists.
