Escalating uprising against “Al-Golany” | Dozens in Idlib City demand the departure of head of H*T*S and release of prisoners

Idlib province: Protests have been taking place against the head of HTS “Al-Golany”, since the reveal of a murder that took place due to torture on February 24, where a member of Jaish Al-Ahrar was killed in a prison of HTS after being arrested for months and his body was hidden.

Meanwhile, dozens protested in Idlib confirming their demands of the departure of “Al-Golany” and demanding that members of the security service that is responsible of torturing and killing civilians to be held accountable.

Yesterday, dozens protesters went out in Taftanaz Town in Idlib countryside, demanding the departure of the head of HTS “Al-Golany” and the release of prisoners in prisons of HTS.

Anger spread among civilians in HTS-held areas and the Syrian north, after HTS admitted to killing a detainee that is a member of Jaish Al-Ahrar, ten months after hiding him and not revealing his fate.

HTS spread rumours against the killed detainee that he “collaborated with and received finances from foreign parties”, where he was proven innocent against these charges and he was killed under brutal torture nearly five months ago, while HTS revealed the location of his burial and his body was received and buried in his family’s graves.
