New sit-in over Syrian educational system | Asayish prevents new students sit-in in Ain al-Arab (Kobani)
Aleppo province: The Internal Security Forces (Asayish) have prevented student sit-in in Ain al-Arab (Kobani) in east Aleppo countryside on Thursday. The students aspire allowing them to receive education sessions of the Syrian regime curriculum.
On the morning, SOHR protesters have monitored that the students called for protest against preventing them from learning the educational curriculum of the Syrian regime while al-Asayish forces have been arresting the teachers who give private courses according to a previous decision of the Autonomous Administration.
Al-Asayish forces have spread intensively in the area that was supposed to witness the protests and the sit-in. They also cut the internet of the city to prevent communication among the students with each other and circulate the news about the sit-in.
On Sept. 16, SOHR sources reported that the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) dispersed students who were protesting for the second consecutive day in Ain al-Arab city centre (Kobani) in eastern Aleppo.
According to SOHR sources, tens of students demonstrated in Ain al-Arab city center a day before, demanding allow them to start private courses for teaching the Syrian regime’s curriculum, before the security services dispersed the demonstrators.
Also, security and military services dispersed a demonstration took place today by force, and arrested several students.
SOHR activists confirmed that these demonstrations came after the teachers in that region were forced to sign vows stipulating for not presenting courses of the Syrian regime’s curriculum to the city’s students.
The students are looking forward to learning the Syrian regime’s approved curriculum which grants internationally recognized certifications unlike the curriculums adopted in SDF-held areas. Its worth noting that the education institutions affiliated to SDF are still nascent and face considerable obstacles, as it is the case across the entire areas under the control of the Syrian opposition.
