Aleppo province: Syrian Observatory activists have reported that “Soqour Al-Shamal” faction has arrested two siblings from Karmouk village in Maabatli district for “Sending their sons to Turkey without informing the faction.” Later, the two men have been released after paying a ransom.

Moreover, members of a joint Turkish military police and intelligence patrol have arrested a man from Premjeh in Maabatli district and took him to the Turkish intelligence headquarters in Afrin for unknown reasons.

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