For “dealing and collaborating with SDF” | Ankara-backed “Al-Hamza Division” arrests nearly ten people in Ras al-Ain countryside (Sere Kaniye)
Al-Hasaka governorate – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
SOHR sources have reported that the Ankara-backed “al-Hamza Division” and operating in the “Peace Spring” factions, arrested eight people in the village of Merikis in eastern Ras al-Ain countryside (Sere Kaniye), north of Hasaka, for “collaborating and dealing with SDF.”
According to Syrian Observatory sources, among the detainees were former SDF fighters who joined the ranks of Turkish-backed factions after taking control of the area.
On January 11, SOHR sources said that Turkish-backed factions had turned a shop into an arms store in the town of Ras al-Ain (Sere Kaniye), after they seized and stole its contents.
Turkish-backed factions share civilians’ property, including houses and shops in the “Peace Spring” areas, while these thefts cause constant infighting between them, with the proliferation of weapons and security chaos.
It is worth noting that the shop was used to sell clothes before the people of the city were displaced, as Turkish forces and proxy factions controlled large areas in the military operation “Peace Spring.”
On the other hand, residents of Ras al-Ain and its countryside in the “Peace Spring” area in Hasakeh countryside are suffering from the increasing violations by Turkish-backed factions, with Turkish forces’ inaction.
