“Safe zone” | Violent clashes erupt in Aleppo countryside following rape of a girl by brother of commander in “Al-Jabha Al-Shamiyyah”

Aleppo province: Several members of the military police sustained various injuries in an attack by groups of displaced gunmen from Homs city on headquarters of the military police in Al-Bab city in the eastern countryside of Aleppo. The attack came as a part of response to the rape of a four-year-old girl by the brother of a commander in “Al-Jabha Al-Shamiyyah” known as “Abu Ghannoum.”

 

According to SOHR sources, displaced gunmen from Homs city brought in grand military reinforcement from different areas controlled by Turkish-backed factions to Al-Bab city, after the rape of a little displaced girl from Homs city by the brother of a commander in “Al-Jabha Al-Shamiyyah” in Al-Bab city. Meanwhile, the military police have called for urgent military reinforcement to their headquarters in order to break up the ongoing clashes.

 

In a statement, of which the Syrian Observatory obtained a copy, the residents of Homs called for the punishment of the criminal and demanded the leave of the criminal’s family from areas under the control of Turkish forces and their proxy factions in no more 48 hours.

 

Earlier today, SOHR sources reported that a four-year-old girl was raped by her relative in a Al-Haramayn camp in Shamarin village, near Azaz city, where the girl’s relative took advantage of the girl being alone. According to SOHR, the little girl went missing, and her mother began searching for her until she found out that the cousin of her husband took her little girl to a tent, raped her and put his hand on the girl’s mouth, as well as beating her violently in order not to scream. The child was taken to a hospital in the northern countryside of Aleppo due to her poor health condition.
