Accused of “dealing with Autonomous Administration” | Turkish intelligence and military police arrest three civilians in Afrin’s Jendires

Aleppo province: SOHR sources have reported that members of a joint patrol of Turkish intelligence and military police have arrested three civilians from Al-Ramadiyah village in Jendires district in Afrin countryside in north-western Aleppo for “dealing with the former Autonomous Administration.”

 

On the other hand, the number of civilians arrested in Hakja village in Sheikh Hadeed district in Afrin countryside since August 6 has risen to five, after the arrest of two civilians by “Liwaa Al-Waqqas” faction for unknown reasons.

 

This comes as a part of ongoing violations and oppression practiced by Turkish-backed factions against the remaining residents of Afrin.

 

On August 7, SOHR sources reported that Liwaa Al-Waqas which operates under the banner of the “National Army” launched a campaign of arbitrary arrests to collect ransoms from civilians. The faction arrested three civilians from Hakja village in Sheikh Al-Hadeed district on August 6 for unknown charges. The arrested civilians were taken to Liwaa Al-Waqas security headquarters in the district.

 

A few days earleir, members of a civil police patrol arrested a civilian from Muhammadiyah village in Jendires district in Afrin countryside, north-west of Aleppo, for unknown reasons. The civilian was taken to a security centre in Jendires district.
