“Al-Hawl mini-state” | Asayish Forces found beheaded body of Iraqi refugee
Al-Hasakah Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: An Iraqi refugee was founded beheaded in Al-Hawl camp in the south-eastern countryside of Al-Hasakah. According to SOHR sources, the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) have found the Iraqi refugee’s body in a section of Al-Hawl camp, while his head was found in another sector. Meanwhile, the reasons and motives behind this murder, which coincided with the escalating assassinations in Al-Hawl camp, remained unknown.
On January 9, SOHR sources reported that a gunman blew himself up with a grenade in the third section in Al-Hawl camp in the eastern countryside of Al-Hasakah, as members of the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) managed to catch him after pursuing him for killing an Asayish member with a silenced gun. Moreover, the leader of Asayish Forces’ patrol sustained serious injuries due to the explosion, and he was taken later to hospital.
This development came after the assassination of the head of the “Syrian Council”, and in the wake of the ongoing security chaos and escalating assassinations in Al-Hawl camp.
SOHR sources reported earlier that unknown gunmen opened fire on the head of the “Syrian Council” and his son in the fourth section in Al-Hawl camp. The attack resulted in the death of the head of the “Syrian Council”, while his son sustained serious injuries. It is worth noting that the head of the “Syrian Council” was following up and facilitating the affairs of Syrian refugees in the camp.
Following the assassination, the Internal Security Forces (Asaysh) launched a security campaign in the second and third sections in the camp, searching for the perpetrators.
A day earlier, SOHR activists said that Internal Security Forces found the body of a female refugee of Iraqi nationality. The victim was shot twice in the head in the second section of al-Hawl camp in eastern countryside of Hasakeh.
