For posting against Turkish Foreign Minister | Military Police in Afrin arrest media activist

Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported that members of a “Military Police” checkpoint arrested a media activist at the checkpoint in Kafr Janna in Shiran district in Afrin countryside within “Olive Branch” area, because the activist had posted against the Turkish Foreign Minister on “Facebook.”

The post read: “To the Turkish Foreign Minister, the government of our revolution remains and Al-Assad’s rule will end, have you ever heard of people who leave, we are like “olive and figs” we remain forever, we the people and the revolution, we are the blood of the martyrs and the screams of detainees, we are the appeals of widows and orphans, but who are you?”

According to reliable SOHR sources, the activist is from Daraa, and after he suddenly went missing his family reported to all factions in the region and Military Police stations, where the Military Police denied that they had the activist. However, after posting information that the media activist went missing on pages, it was revealed that the activist was detained by the Military Police in Afrin.

On the same context, residents protested in front of the building of the Military Police in Afrin and denounced the actions of the Military Police and the arbitrary arrests against the civilians in the region, in addition to preventing freedom of expression, demanding his instant release.

Earlier today, Syrian Observatory activists reported that a joint patrol of Turkish civil police and intelligence arrested a woman from Adama village in Bulbul district in Afrin countryside, north-west of Aleppo, on December 2, for “dealing with the former Autonomous Administration.” The woman was taken to an unknown area.
