Less than a week after the Syrian Islamic Council’s statement | Turkish-backed factions cut off roads, threatening residents with death
Observatory sources say that tribal gunmen of al-Jabha al-Shamiya cut off the roads in the town of Sajo, north of Aleppo, and fired in the air, preventing civilians from leaving their homes, and threatening to kill them if they left their houses and verbally abusing them, following a disagreement between the gunmen and a Turkish-backed faction.
On September 10, the Syrian Islamic Council issued a statement entitled “An open letter to the Interim Government and the judiciary in the liberated areas.”
The statement addressed all civilians and members of Turkish-backed factions and the National Army leadership in areas north of Aleppo, calling on them to punish those responsible for the widespread security chaos in the area.
The Syrian Islamic Council called on the executive, led by the “Interim Government”, to impose a deterrent punishment on these criminals, such as murderers, spoilers, and the gangs responsible for setting up booby-trapped vehicles and kidnappings.
The Syrian Islamic Council stressed that these criminals must be punished, and their impunity would lead to more crimes and give the regime the opportunity to spread the chaos by its subversive agents.
