Because of “Relics and Manuscripts of The Synagogue”, Considerable Disagreement North Syria Pushes Jobar Neighborhood Council to Accuse Leadership of Rahman Corps of “Stealing Them”

The Syrian north is witnessing tension its roots began east of the capital Damascus, and moved to Syrian north, where the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored a few days ago tension between the General Command of Rahman Corps and the leadership of Jobar neighborhood of Damascus in particular, in one hand, and between the Local Council of Jobar neighborhood on the other hand, after disagreements on ancient manuscripts and relics which were in the custody of leadership of Rahman Corps in Jobar neighborhood, and in the details which the Syrian Observatory was able to document: before the displacement process the Local Council of Jobar neighborhood trusted Rahman Corps on Jewish manuscripts and relics, used to be located in the synagogue within the Damascus neighbourhood of Jobar in the eastern section of the capital, and when the displacement was carried out in late March 2018 – beginning of April 2018; Rahman Corps transferred the relics and manuscripts it was trusted to keep to its destination north of Syria, but after reaching the Syrian north the Council asked the leadership of the Corps to return the things it was “trusted” to keep; the Corps denied having them, which created considerable tension between both parties.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored both parties carrying out meetings in order to reach a solution for this matter, while Rahman Corps insisted on denying having the relics and manuscripts with it, which pushed the Council and some of the fighters from Jobar neighbourhood –who fight under the command of the Corps– to accuse Rahman Corps represented by its leader Abdunnasir Shamir of “stealing the manuscripts and relics that were present in the synagogue”, which escalated the tension between both parties even more, also reliable sources confirmed to the Syrian Observatory that the relics are very precious .

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights published on the 29th of March 2018 that an official working in Al-Rahman Corps was killed in Idlib province upon his arrival there, where his partner, who is a trader from the Eastern Ghouta, killed him. In the details obtained by the SOHR, a fight took place between financial official of Al-Rahman Corps, aka Abu Essam Aouka, against his partner in trade in the Eastern Ghouta, when the financial official of Al-Rahman Corps took the money of the Al-Rahman Corps safe with him to Idlib, after he left within the groups that were displaced within Jouber – Zamlka – Arbin agreement. An argument between the financial official and his partner, who used to work together in trade business in the Eastern Ghouta during the time of Al-Rahman Corps’ control over parts of the Eastern Ghouta, led to a fight on sharing the money, resulted in the death of Abu Essam Aouka who was shot dead by the gun of his partner at the outskirts of Idlib province.
