Over threats by militiaman of “al-Jabha al-Shamiyyah” | Kurdish young man commits suicide in Afrin city centre

Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported that a Kurdish young man from Bulbul district in Afrin countryside, who worked in a Shawarma restaurant ob the road to Raju, shot himself in Afrin city centre.


According to SOHR activists, the young man committed suicide over harassment and daily threats by a militiaman of “al-Jabha al-Shamiyyah” known as “Abu Ja’far” from Mayer village in northern Aleppo. The militiaman had frequently blackmailed the Kurdish young man and took levies from him in return for turning a blind-eye to the young man’s brother who served previously in the ranks of the “Self-Defence Forces” during the control of the Autonomous Administration of Afrin. The Turkish-backed militiaman also threatened to arrest the Kurdish young man and his brother, if he did not pay the levies. The young man therefore chose to kill himself to escape from the great psychological pressure he suffered from in the recent time.


Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that members of Liwaa al-Samarqand has forced a displaced family of eight people, including orphan children, out of the house they were living in Kafr Safrah village in Jendires district in Afrin countryside. The Turkish-backed faction’s militiamen threw the house’s furniture in farmlands under the pretext of “turning the house into a military headquarters.
