Against prices of wheat | Conflict erupts between security members and protesters during protests in Al-Raqqa

Al-Raqqa province: Military and security members insulted and beat two journalists, while they were covering the protests in front of the Executive Council in Al-Raqqa, where they arrested one of the journalists before releasing him after forcing him to delete all the interviews with farmers and the videos on his cellular phone. Moreover, they forcefully prevented all media activists from covering the protests.

The members arrested two civilians following the protests that erupted against the prices of wheat, and took them to a security branch.

Wheat is considered one of the essential crops, which residents of the Syrian island depend on for their nutrition, where the “Autonomous Administration” has ignored the wheat cultivation for years.
