On February 15, As many people criticise and protest against Syrian government policies on the Syrian coast, reliable sources informed SOHR that a mechanical engineer, “Jihad Ibrahim”, who is from Mashta Helou town in Tartous countryside, had disappeared last Saturday, February 12, when he was on his way to his home in Baniyas.

It is worth noting that the engineer “Jihad” is one of the most skilled Syrian engineers in the maintenance of power plants and an employee of Baniyas’ power plant.

According to Syrian Observatory sources, the engineer had received threats from loyalists of regime security services because of his post on his personal Facebook account, in which he criticised rampant corruption in regime institutions.

It is believed that “Jihad” is arrested by the regime’s security services, as the area is completely controlled by regime forces and the militants loyal to them.
