Daraa countryside | Regime forces arrest man for “joining faction pledging allegiance to ISIS”

SOHR activists have reported that regime security forces stationed at checkpoints between Da’il and Tafas in Daraa countryside arrested a man on his way to Da’il in the past few hours.

According to Syrian Observatory activists, the arrested man is accused of joining Khalid bin Al-Walid’s army faction “pledging allegiance” to ISIS during the faction’s control over Al-Yarmouk Basin area in western Daraa countryside.

On August 5, SOHR activists reported that members of a regime’s new checkpoint (Artoz) in Rif Dimashq arrested a group of smugglers, and took them to the security centres.

According to reliable SOHR sources, regime forces managed to arrest three smugglers, who had weapons in their possession.

Local sources confirmed that the arrested smugglers worked for a local faction in Al-Suwaydaa, and own a store that sells weapons in Salkhad area.

Moreover, local sources confirmed that the weapons they had were hunting weapons and not military weapons, and are automatic and used by pressure gauges and ammunition.

It is worth noting that the border area with Lebanon is considered a site and a hotbed for smugglers and drug dealers, in addition to being a site for manufacturing them under the coat of the Lebanese “Hezbollah” and the regime’s Fourth Division.
