For collecting more levies | Al-Sham Corps impose new laws regarding harvesting civilians’ crops in Afrin countryside
Aleppo province: SOHR sources have reported that al-Sham Corps which is close to the Turkish Intelligence has issued a new decision preventing the residents of Barrad village in Shirawa district from going to their farms or harvesting their agriculture crops under penalty of detention and fine. According to the new decree, the residents have to get a security approval by the faction which controls the village, after paying a levy, so that they can go to their farms and start harvesting.
It is worth noting that al-Sham Corps aims to clamp down on the indigenous inhabitants even more through issuance of unachievable decisions to force the residents to leave the region, so that the faction can seize the civilians’ properties under the pretext of “protecting public and private properties”.
SOHR sources reported hours ago that violations by the Turkish-backed factions against Kurdish civilians in Afrin and surrounding districts continued, as militiamen of Sultan Murad faction seized the house of a civilian who was displaced from Kafr Jenna in Sharran district to Aleppo city during “Olive Branch operation. The seized house was located next to “al-Shaikh Shawakh” mosque in Old Afrin neighborhood in Afrin city which is under the control of Turkish forces and factions of the “National Army”.
According to SOHR activists, the brother of owner of the house seized by Sultan Murad faction was the one responsible for it, as he had rented it. However, Sultan Murad militiamen broke the doors of the house, a few days ago, took over it by force and turned it into a military headquarters, after the lessee left it.
It is worth noting that Sultan Murad Division took over dozens of shops and houses belonging to residents who were forced to displace from Afrin canton.
