Inmate tortured to death in Syrian opposition jails in Aleppo countryside

ALEPPO NORTHERN COUNTRYSIDE, Syria (North Press) – One person died yesterday, under torture in Aleppo-based al-Ra’i prison run by Turkish-backed Syrian opposition factions.

Suleiman Nouri No’man, 51, from Bozikah village, Afrin region, was arrested in June 2019 on charges of previous links with the Autonomous Administration. No’man was beaten and tortured to death in the jail of al-Ra’i.

Yesterday evening, the jail management informed family of the deceased to attend and receive his body.

The city of Afrin and its villages, north of Aleppo, have been controlled by Turkish forces and the affiliated factions since March 2018.

The Afrin region has been witnessing cases of killing, kidnapping and arrest, in addition to frequent bombings, amid the inability of the factions controlling it to settle the security in the region.
