To collect ransoms | “National Army” members arrest a “seeker for safe haven” in Al-Hasakah

Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported that members of the Turkish-backed “National Army” arrested a young man from Dirbasiyah countryside western of Al-Hasakah, while he was trying to sneak into Turkish territory through smuggling from Ras Al-Ain area in “Peace Spring” area.

According to reliable SOHR sources, members of the “National Army” contacted the parents of the young man demanding 8,000 USDs ransom to release him. Meanwhile, the fate of the young man is still unknown.

It is worth noting that the Turkish-backed factions in “Peace Spring” area work on transporting the seekers for a safe haven from SDF areas towards Turkey for huge amounts of money, in addition to the kidnaps to receive ransoms and many more crimes.
