For demanding their properties | Jaish Al-Islam arrests an elder woman and her son in Ras Al-Ain

Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported that “Jaish Al-Islam” faction, which is affiliated to the Turkish-backed “Syrian National Army”, arrested an elder Yezidi woman and her son in Al-Sokariyah village eastern of Ras Al-Ain in “Peace Spring” area, when they refused to leave the village after staying in the open for over two weeks demanding their properties back including their houses, projects and agricultural wells, where the elder woman and her son were threatened by guns and were forced to withdraw the complaints they issued to receive their properties back.

On August 21, SOHR sources reported that a Syrian civilian of the Yazidi community were trying for over a year to regain his properties, including farmlands and houses, which were taken over by “Jaysh Al-Islam” which operates under the banner of the Turkish-backed “National Army.”
It is worth noting that “Jaysh Al-Islam” seized farmlands and houses belonging to residents from Al-Sukkariyah village in the eastern countryside of Ras Al-Ain in “Peace Spring” area, where the houses were turned into military headquarters, while the farmlands were rented out by the faction’s militiamen.
SOHR sources confirmed that the Turkish-backed faction’s militiamen expelled the Yazidi civilian when he came with his elderly mother to provide ownership documents, leaving them in the open.
SOHR sources also confirmed that the civilian provided documents proving his ownership of those farmlands whose area is estimated to be nearly 750 acres. The civilian had obtained an approval from the city council to take back his land. However, “Jaysh Al-Islam” militiamen asked him to pay 150,000 USD in return for regaining the land.
