Syrian IDP killed in Syria’s Hawl Camp

HASAKAH, Syria (North Press) – On Friday, a Syrian IDP was murdered by unknown individuals in the fourth sector of Hawl Camp, east Hasakah, northeast Syria.

Unknown individuals killed Syrian IDP Saher al-Aliyan in front of his tent while returning from Friday prayer, a military source from the camp told North Press.

The 26-year-old al-Aliyan, who is from Deir ez-Zor, was shot by a silenced pistol, according to the source.

“In such cases, fingers are always pointed at sleeper cells of the Islamic State (ISIS), as a result of the similar crimes that the camp witnessed previously,” the source added.

The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) is in the process of evacuating the camp of Syrian IDPs and sending them to their areas.

On Wednesday, a new batch including 59 families with about 202 persons left the camp towards Sirrin and other areas in Aleppo countryside, according to Hawl Camp management.

Despite a security campaign by the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) with the support of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the US-led Global Coalition in late March, Hawl Camp witnessed several murders.

During the first three months of 2021, the camp witnessed the murder of 47 persons, according to a previous statement by Asayish.
