For looting civilian’s properties | Factional clashes renew between al-Hamza Division and Suqur al-Ghab in Afrin countryside
Aleppo province: SOHR activists in Afrin have reported that violent clashes broke out between Suqur al-Ghab led by “Mu’taz Abdullah” and al-Hamza Division in Ma’ratah, Faqeeran and Julaqan villages in Afrin countryside, in an attempt by “Mu’taz Abdullah” to regain all headquarters he lost a month ago.
Al-Hamza Division brought in military reinforcement to Ma’ratah, Faqeeran and Julaqan villages with the aim to regain control of these villages once again, after losing them this evening. Meanwhile, al-Amshat faction and Nour al-Dein Zinky have sent military reinforcement to the area to support al-Hamza Division against Mu’taz Abdullah’s group.
It is worth noting that Mu’taz Abdullah is accused of killing a civilian from Afrin’s Kaziya village on August 22, after the civilian tried to prevent Mu’taz Abdullah from looting his home’s contents after the civilian fled from the village after factional clashes. The victim’s body was found dead in his land near the village of Drakreh in the countryside of Maabatli, with marks of torture on his body.
