Second public executions in two weeks | SDF court sentences two men to death for “spying for Turkish intelligence”

SOHR activists have reported that members of the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) have gathered the families of the deceased people, who were killed in Turkish aerial and ground bombardment, to witness to the public execution in Al-Jibsa housing in the southern countryside of Al-Hasakah.

Two young men, one of Akidat tribe and one of Al-Jabour tribe, were executed for “spying for Turkish intelligence.”

The verdict, capital punishment, was publicly executed in full view of people, after the verdict was handed down by a “Autonomous Administration” court.

On September 16, reliable sources informed SOHR that SDF-held city of Al-Raqqah , the former de-facto capital of the “Caliphate State,” witnessed the trial of 15 people accused of “spying for Turkish intelligence.”

It is worth noting that a large number of the families of civilians and combatants, who had been killed in the latest Turkish ground and aerial attacks, attended the closed trial which was held on Sunday, September 11, 2022.

According to SOHR sources, the indictees pleaded guilty to providing the Turkish intelligence with coordinates of the whereabouts of military figures and commanders of the “Autonomous Administration” and “Syria Democratic Forces” with the aim of attacking them by Turkish forces. The indictees also told off details about their communications with the Turkish intelligence.

The court imposed the death penalty on 13 indctees who had confessed to spying for Turkish intelligence. Meanwhile, the remaining two indictees were not sentenced, as there was not enough evidence against them, although they had confessed to spying for the Turkish intelligence.

During the trial, the families of victims attempted to attack the inductees.
