Security chaos in “safe zone” | Clashes erupt between smugglers in Al-Bab city

Aleppo province: SOHR activists have monitored clashes with machineguns in the residential areas of Al-Bab city “The Safe Area” in Aleppo countryside between gunmen from “Shokry” family on one hand and “Hajo” family on the other hand, due to disputes over the entrance of smuggled materials coming from regime-held areas to Al-Bab city via members of the “National Army”, injuring a person with stray bullets, amid a state of panic and fear among local residents despite appeals by the residents to the police to interfere, however the police haven’t taken any actions.

On May 21, SOHR activists reported that a man was killed and others injured in violent clashes between Slo family and Hassan family in Soran city in Azaz countryside, north of Aleppo, amid intensive security alert by Military Police at Azaz’s entrances and exits.
