Anti-Turkey protests | “Islamic Party of Liberation” members vow to remove Turkish flag and escalate peaceful protests

Aleppo province: Members and supporters of the “Islamic Party of Liberation,” who participated in the demonstrations which took place in the past hours in Aleppo and Idlib countryside, vowed to remove Turkish flags raised over governmental institutions and escalate peaceful protests against Turkey.

It is worth noting that Party of Liberation members took part in yesterday’s demonstrations.

Yesterday, SOHR reported seeing protests in more than 36 areas in the countryside of Aleppo and Idlib, “Peace Spring areas,” and Party of Liberation supporters chanted slogans against the Turkish regime and Erdogan.

SOHR activists have just reported that this morning a military police patrol arrested a child under the age of 13 from Jarablus city for “insulting the Turkish flag striking the flag with shoes.”

The military police took him to their security posts in Jarablus city.

Following the arrest, the child’s relatives set fires to rubber tyres and blocked roads in Jarablus city, demanding the immediate release of the child.

This morning, SOHR activists reported that civil police patrols in Jarablus, which is under the control of Ankara-backed factions in the northeastern countryside of Aleppo, carried out a campaign of arrests of people who took part in yesterday’s protests against Turkish foreign minister’s statements about the possibility of reconciliation between the opposition and the Syrian regime.

According to SOHR activists, members of a civil police patrol arrested a displaced singer from Homs for “inciting demonstrations and raising slogans denouncing Turkish statements.”

Moreover, eight people were arrested for “demonstrating near Jarablus border crossing between Syria and Turkey.

The arrest campaign comes amid popular calls to demonstrate today after noon prayers in Jarablus city, in response to the arrests campaign by “Civil Police.”
