Aleppo Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: Reliable sources have told SOHR that gunmen of the Turkish-backed “Al-Jabha Al-Shamiyyah” have imposed new levies on residents in Hasiyyah village (Merkan) of Ma’batli district in rural Afrin in the north-western countryside of Aleppo, as olive harvest starts.

 

According to SOHR sources, the Turkish-backed faction has imposed a levy of an estimated 300 USD on everyone has a farm with olive trees planted in, in return for allowing them to harvest their olive and the olive of their relatives living outside Afrin. This development comes as a part of the ongoing violations by Turkish-backed factions against the people of Afrin in the north-western countryside of Aleppo.

 

On November 20, SOHR sources said that Turkish-backed factions’ violations continued against the remaining residents in Afrin in the north-west of Aleppo, as members of “Suqur Al-Shamal” and “Al-Muntaser Bellah” felled hundreds of olive trees and stole others belonging to civilians in Bolbol and Ma’batli countryside.
