Separate incidents | Turkish intelligence, military police and Ahrar Al-Sharqiyah arrest two civilians in Afrin

Aleppo province: SOHR sources have reported that members of a joint patrol of Turkish intelligence and military police arrested a civil engineer who is a member of the local council in Bulbul district for unknown reasons on June 20 from his house in Afrin city. Meanwhile, residents have accused the arrested civilian of “cooperating with Turkish-backed factions and tipping off about several residents from Afrin city with the aim of arresting them.”

 

On the other hand, members of a patrol of Ahrar Al-Sharqiyyah faction arrested a civilian for “dealing with the former Autonomous Administration.” It is worth noting that this civilian was arrested three times previously for the same charge, and he was released only when his family had paid ransoms.

 

Observatory sources have just reported that a patrol of the civil police arrested, last week, a civilian from Shekhotka village in Ma’batli district in Afrin countryside for “participating in guard shifts during the Autonomous Administration’s control of Afrin canton.”

 

Similarly, members of “Jaysh Al-Islam” arrested a civilian from Zafanka village in Bulbul district and living in Afrin city. According to SOHR sources, the “Jaysh Al-Islam” members fired bullets in the air during the arrest of the civilian who was taken to a security headquarters of the faction in Afrin city following a car accident when the civilian’s car crashed into the car of a member of “Jaysh Al-Islam.”

 

Yesterday, SOHR activists reported that a military police patrol arrested two civilians from Al-Basouta village in Shirawa district that week, for “dealing with the former Autonomous Administration” in order to collect ransoms.
