Turkish forces arrest 8 civilians in Syria’s Sere Kaniye

HASAKAH, Syria (North Press) – Turkish Intelligence, in coordination with Military Police, affiliated with Turkish-backed armed opposition factions, aka Syrian National Army (SNA), arrested on Monday eight individuals in the countryside of Hasakah Governorate, northeast Syria.

An exclusive source told North Press that a security unit of the Turkish Intelligence supported by the Military Police raided five houses in the village of al-Mabrouka in the countryside of Sere Kaniye (Ras al-Ain), north of Hasakah, and arrested eight individuals who had arrived from areas held by Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) on charges of terrorism.

Those who were arrested headed to the SNA-held areas for the purpose of crossing to Turkey, the source added.

The detained individuals are reported to be from the governorates of Homs, Raqqa, and Deir ez-Zor, the source noted.

The Turkish forces and the SNA occupied Sere Kaniye and Tel Abyad after the so-called “Peace Spring” military operation in October 2019.
