Ras Al-Ain | Turkish-backed militiaman assassinated, as factional quarrels continue in “Peace Spring” areas
A member of the Turkish-backed factions was killed and another sustained serious injuries, after they were shot by unknown gunmen in Mabroukah village in western Ras Al-Ain. This incident coincided with the ongoing quarrels and disagreements among the Turkish-backed factions at checkpoints and crossings used for smuggling in “Peace Spring” areas in Al-Hasakah countryside.
Yesterday, reliable sources told SOHR that tension was growing in Ras Al-Ain city (Sere Kaniye) between “Al-Mu’tasim Division” and the “Civil Police”, in the wake of shooting several young people by a member of “Al-Mu’tasim Division” in “Allouk Gharbi” village in Ras Al-Ain countryside. The gunfire killed a young man from the village, while he was trying to steal a motorcycle.
After the incident, the Civil Police amassed and deployed troops in the Allouk Gharbi village to Ras Al-Ain city, in an attempt to exert pressure on “Al-Mu’tasim Division” to hand over the murderer and try him.
Reliable sources had informed SOHR that militiamen of the Turkish-backed “National Army” arrested two girls in “Peace Spring” areas, after crossing from Al-Hasakah city to Al-Raqqah countryside on their way to Turkey. The girls were arrested in Tal Abyad in Al-Raqqah countryside and taken to an unknown destination.
