Attempting to escape to Turkey | Turkish Janderma tortures three young men from al-Hasakah

SOHR sources have reported that three young men have been beaten brutally by the Turkish Border Guard Forces “Janderma”, while they were attempting to escape to Turkey, last night, from Bashak village in al-Qahtaniyah countryside in al-Hasakah province. According to SOHR sources, the young men were ambushed by the Turkish Janderma just after they had crossed the border strip in the early hours of Thursday morning, where they were deported to Syria this dawn after being tortured.


Yesterday, SOHR activists documented the serious injury of a young man from Maarrat Harma village in Idlib countryside, after being shot by Turkish Janderma while he was attempting to cross into Turkey from the countryside of Idlib. The young man was trying to escape from the repercussions of Syria’s protracted war which has been raging for over a decade.
