Al-Hawl camp | Military forces arrest nearly 50 people following the killing of three civilians two days ago

Reliable sources have informed SOHR that SDF, Asayish and counter-terrorism forces “HAT” have arrested more than 46 people in its recent campaign in the town and camp of Al-Hawl.

These arrests and security campaigns come in light of the recent events in the camp, which left three civilians killed, and they are: A woman, a child and a man, and left four women, six children, and three Asayish members injured. As well as, an ISIS member was killed.

On March 29, SOHR activists documented an increase in the death toll, following clashes in Al-Hawl camp, leaving three civilians killed including a woman, a child and a man, four women and six children injured, and an ISIS element killed, in addition to the injury of three members of Al-Asayesh.

SOHR sources reported also that Al-Hawl camp in the far south-east countryside of Al-Hasakah province, had been witnessing ongoing tension since March 28 as violent clashes with RPG and confrontations between the military forces in charge of the camp and ISIS cells erupted on Monday evening in the fourth and fifth sections of the camp. According to Syrian Observatory sources, International Coalition forces and “HAT” forces specialised in “combating terrorism” arrived in Al-Hawl town and the camp in light of prevailing tension and imposed a complete curfew in the town and camp of Al-Hawl. These developments coincide with the flight by International Coalition helicopters and reconnaissance aircraft over the area.
