Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported that members of the Turkish military police stationed at a checkpoint in Kafr Jannah village arrested a young man from Khalnirah village in Afrin countryside yesterday, while he was returning from Afrin city. On the other hand, Liwaa Suqour al-Shamal which controls Kamrouk village in Ma’batli district had arrested two civilians from the same village with the aim to collect ransoms, as the faction accused the two men of “communicating with the former Autonomous Administration”.
On September 16, “al-Jabha al-Shamiyyah” arrested a young man from Qarrah Baba village in Raju district, after he had retuned from Kurdish-held areas in the northern countryside of Aleppo. The Turkish-backed faction asked the young man’s relatives to pay a ransom of 5,000 USD.
While on September 14, a patrol of the Turkish Intelligence service arrested two young men and a girl from Buraymajah village for “communicating with the former Autonomous Administration”.
