Escalating chaos in Turkey-backed factions |Unidentified gunmen kidnap civilian in al-Bab city
Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported that three unknown gunmen in a “Santa fe” car have kidnapped a civilian in broad daylight in “Zamzam” street in the center of al-Bab city in the northeastern countryside of Aleppo, after they opened fire and brutally beat him, and then took him to an unknown destination.
The attack comes in light of the ongoing security chaos in Turkish-backed factions-held areas.
On September 12, SOHR activists reported that members of al-Hamza Division (al-Hamzat) assaulted a member of the Military police, after a fight erupted between armed men from Deir Ezzor working for al-Hamza Division and an armed man from Homs city working for the Military Police.
After the fight, the Military Police brought in military reinforcement comprising militiamen of al-Jabha al-Shamiyah and al-Sultan Murad and arrested several gunmen from Deir Ezzor. Al-Hamzat reacted to the arrest of the gunmen by bringing military in reinforcement to al-Bab city, amid growing tension and a state of alert in al-Bab city.
On the other hand, unknown gunmen in a black vehicle have kidnapped a young man from the covered market in al-Bab city.
