Moreover, members of the Military Police arrested a civilian from Damliyah village in Rajo district for “receiving money transaction from SDF-held areas.”

On the other hand, members of the National Army-backed 112th Brigade arrested a civilian in a school in Rajo district, after framing him with theft and imprisoning him instead of two thieves who stole diesel from a school in Rajo district, where the thieves were affiliated to the 112th Brigade.
