Ongoing violations in Afrin | Military police arrest four civilians in Jwaiq village

Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported that members of a military police patrol arrested four civilians from Jwaiq village in Afrin countryside on January 19, where the civilians were taken to a security centre in Afrin city for unknown reason.

 

On January 19, SOHR sources reported that the military court in Afrin city released eight civilians from Afrin city and countryside on January 17, after each civilian had paid a ransom of 3,000 TL. It is worth noting that the court shares this money with the Turkish-backed factions.

 

On the other hand, members of a patrol of the military police arrested a civilian from Kayla village in Bulbul district for “participating in guard shifts during the Autonomous Administration’s control of Afrin city”, where the patrol’s member asked for a ransom for his release.

 

While on January 17, SOHR activists reported that members of a Military Police patrol took a woman from Afrin as a hostage on January 12.

 

According to sources, the members illegally detained a woman from Ba’danly in Ma’batly district to pressure her husband to turn himself in to the police.

 

It is worth noting that the woman’s husband lived in Kurdish-held areas in Aleppo and he was accused of “dealing with the former Autonomous Administration”, where the Police members threatened to seize all his properties if he did not surrender.
