Large-scale security campaign in Al-Hawl camp | Joint forces arrest more people, and continue to take fingerprints of the camp’s inhabitants

 

SOHR activists say that the large-security campaign continues in the “Al-Hawl mini-state”, located in the south-eastern countryside of al-Hasaka, for the third day in a row by joint forces comprising over 5,000 fighters of Syria Democratic Forces, People’s Protection Units (YPG), Women’s Protection Units (YPJ), Internal Security Forces (Asayish) and Counter-Terrorism Special Units (H.A.T.)

According to Syrian Observatory sources, the forces carrying out the large-scale campaign have found a number of tunnels inside the camp in addition to weapons, devices and computers, as they continued taking fingerprints of the people in the camp for security purposes and census.

SOHR sources have added that most of the 35 people arrested on the first day of the campaign were released, 12 of whom were kept under investigation, while 11 people, including also women, were arrested on the second day of the campaign, amid secrecy about the numbers of the detainees until the end of the campaign, which is expected to last 10 to 15 days, for fear that ISIS cells might carry out new operations in light of the major crimes that took place in the camp this year, which was one of the main reasons for this large-scale security campaign.
