Having participating in protests against Turkish energy company | Military Police arrest two of their members in Aleppo

Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported that members of a Military Police patrol arrested two of their members yesterday, for “participating in peaceful protests against the Turkish electricity company in Al-Bab city in eastern Aleppo countryside on June 4”, where hundreds of civilians and Turkish-backed factions from Al-Bab city in eastern Aleppo countryside participated as well.

It is worth noting that the electricity in areas held by Turkish forces and their proxies is provided by “STE” and “AK energy” Turkish companies.

On June 4, SOHR activists reported that a member of “Jayish Al-Sharqyyiah” faction died of wounds he sustained, by “police” bullets as they tried to disperse a demonstration against the Turkish electricity company in Jendiries in Afrin countryside, north-west of Aleppo.

It is worth noting that the dead man is from Deir Ezzor and is a fighter in “Jayish Al-Sarqqiyah” faction. The fighter did not carry weapons during the demonstration.

Ankara-backed faction member was also found burned and shot dead inside the local council building in Afrin, during protests against the Turkish electricity company and after some protesters burned and vandalised the Turkish government-backed local council.

Jinderes is witnessing an alert among Jaish Al-Sharqiyah faction amid public fears of armed clashes.

Meanwhile, Al-Bab city eastern of Aleppo witnessed protests against the Turkish electricity company, and protestors in Marae’ city northern of Aleppo set the headquarters of the Local Council on fire, in light of ongoing public protests chanting “Syria is free country… Turkish people should leave.”
