Al-Hawl camp | Asayish and Counter-Terrorism Forces arrest Iraqi ISIS commander and others ISIS affiliates, including two women of “Hisba”
Al-Hasakah Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: reliable sources have informed SOHR that the Counter-Terrorism units arrested a commander of ISIS cells in Al-Hawl camp yesterday. The commander is called “Abu Khaled” and hails from Anbar province in Iraq.
Meanwhile, the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) arrested, yesterday evening, six “collaborators” and members of ISIS cells, including two women work for “al-Hisba” security branch, also in Al-Hawl camp. It is worth noting that these six ISIS affiliates were arrested after Asayish Forces had obtained information from other people arrested earlier the recent security campaign in Al-Hawl camp about the whereabouts of them.
Yesterday, reliable sources informed SOHR that the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) arrested three people in Al-Hawl camp in Al-Hasakah countryside on charge of “communication with ISIS cells”.
On April 3, SOHR sources reported that the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) arrested four members of ISIS cells in Al-Hawl camp in Al-Hasakah countryside, after other members of ISIS cells, arrested earlier, had informed about their whereabouts.
This development came after the first phase of the large-scale security campaign launched by joint forces, including Assayish Forces, in Al-Hawl camp, targeting members and cells dealing with ISIS.
A day earlier, reliable sources informed SOHR that Abu Karrar Al-Iraqi, the senior ISIS commander who had been arrested in Al-Hawl camp, acknowledged of ordering the killing of a man and a woman of Iraqi nationality in early 2020. The two persons were killed at that time by hitting them with hammers, according to the commander. The victims’ bodies were found in the sewage of the Hawl camp’s first section allocated to Iraqi refugees.
SOHR sources had reported that the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) issued an official statement, announcing the end of the first phase of the large-scale security campaign which targeted ISIS cells and affiliates whose activities were escalated greatly in “Al-Hawl mini-state”.
