Attempts to seize house near Al-Sayyida Zainab | Kurdish family severely beaten by pro-Hezbollah group and arrested by regime security service

Blatant violations | Lebanese Hezbollah group severely beats Kurdish family to force them to sell their house near Al-Sayidda Zainab area and security services arrest family members instead of defending them

SOHR activists have reported that the regime’s security services arrested eight civilians, including at least one child and a woman, of a Kurdish family living in Khirbet Al-Ward area near Al-Sayyida Zainab, south of Rif Dimashq.

This comes after a group of members of Baqir Brigade operating under the banner of Lebanese Hezbollah attacked the Kurdish family home, severely beat men, women, and children and vandalised the furniture and contents of the house.

The armed group attacked the family over a dispute that erupted with the owner of the house as he refused to sell his home to the Lebanese Hezbollah-backed group.

However, instead of intervening for the Kurdish family, regime security services arrested the family members who were injured after being beaten, amid a threat to release them only if they give up the house.

Yesterday, SOHR activists reported that nearly ten people were injured last night, Saturday, following a dispute between a group of Iranian-backed militiamen of Al-Bakara tribe and a group of people residing in Khirbet Ward village near Al-Sayyida Zainab area in southern Rif Dimashq.

According to Syrian Observatory activists, the reason for the dispute was the attempt by a member of Al-Bakara tribe from Deir Ezzor and lives in Khirbet Ward village to regains ownership of a house he had sold to a person earlier.

The dispute developed after his relatives intervened, leaving ten people injured. The wounded people were taken to the hospital for treatment.

The Syrian regime security services arrested a number of those involved in the dispute.

It is worth noting that many families of Al-Bakara tribe from Deir Ezzor province live in Al-Sayyida Zainab area, one of the most important strongholds of Iranian-backed militias in Rif Dimashq.
