Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported that members of Internal Security Forces (Asayish) shot live ammunition at a demonstration in al-Hadhod village in northern Manbij countryside east Aleppo, rejecting the SDF campaign for mandatory conscription, which caused the death of a young man, while three other demonstrators injured.

SOHR sources had reported a demonstration in Manbij city in the north-eastern countryside of Aleppo, as demonstrators condemned the decision of mandatory conscription and the current security chaos, which started from the area of the Grand Mosque and covered the city’s neighborhoods and streets.
