Civilian arrested in Syria’s Afrin countryside

ALEPPO, Syria (North Press) – On Monday, Turkish-backed armed Syrian factions arrested a civilian from his house in Mist Koti village of Rajo district in Afrin, north of Aleppo.

Members of a pro-Turkish faction surrounded the house of Adnan Muhammed Qanbar in Mist Koti village and took him to an unknown location, a local source told North Press.

Qanbar is 30 years old, and he is a tractor driver in Rajo, the source added.

On Saturday, a civilian from the village of Badina in Rajo district was arrested in Azaz.

Turkish forces and Turkish-backed armed Syrian factions have been running the city of Afrin and its villages in northwest Syria since March 2018.

Areas occupied by pro-Turkish factions have been witnessing security chaos accompanied by frequent explosions, in addition to cases of abductions and corruption amid the failure of these factions to maintain security.
