Jandarma targets civil car | Border guards enter border village in Al-Hasakah countryside

Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported that members of the Turkish Jandarma opened fire on a civil car that broke down near the Syrian-Turkish borders between Amoda and Al-Dirbasiyah northern of Al-Hasakah.

SOHR activists reported that the civil car broke down near the gate of Al-Kharza border village between Al-Dirbasiyah and Amoda, where the passengers were shot while they were checking the car after the Turkish soldiers passed the border gate towards Syrian territory to check the car and passengers before returning back to their areas. The village residents pulled the car from the area.

On June 23, SOHR sources reported that Turkish forces brutally tortured three boys while trying to illegally enter Turkey from Amuda countryside, a border city with Turkey north-east of Al-Hasakah, on Wednesday evening.

Where Turkish border guards, Jandarma, detained and tortured the three boys by beating them with sharp objects on separate areas of their bodies and then returned them to Syrian territory.

It is worth noting that Turkish border guards have previously detained and tortured some Syrians after arresting them while trying to cross the border illegally, fleeing the conflict in Syria.

Since early 2022, SOHR activists have documented the death of 12 people, including three children, and the injury of 20 civilians, including three children, by Turkish border guards “Jandarma” in different areas across Syria near and at the border with Turkey.
