For “sneaking into Turkey” | “National Army” members assault a young man from Sajo village

Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported that members of Luwaa Asifat Al-Shamal faction, which is affiliated to the “National Army”, have beaten a civilian from Sajo village in A’zaz countryside northern of Aleppo, while he was trying to sneak into Turkey via smuggling.

On August 9, SOHR activists reported that militiamen of “Al-Jabha Al-Shamiyyah” stationed at a checkpoint in Afrin countryside arrested a civilian, his wife and his children who had been displaced from Daraa city, while they attempting to cross into “Euphrates Shield” area from Daraa with the help of smugglers. “Al-Jabha Al-Shamiyyah” militiamen took the family to the notorious prison of Kafr Jannah in Sharan district and beat the father brutally for “his frequent demands to release his wife and children.”

According to SOHR sources, the civilian is a former commander of opposition factions, and he left Daraa city with his family, heading to Idlib province with the help of smugglers, but he was arrested by Hayyaat Tahrir Al-Sham and was held for hours. As soon as HTS had released the family, they headed to “Euphrates Shield” area where they were arrested at “Al-Jabha Al-Shamiyyah” checkpoint. The family was released later, after mediation by commanders of “Al-Jabha Al-Shamiyyah,” who are descended from Daraa.
