ALEPPO NORTHERN COUNTRYSIDE, Syria (North Press) – On Wednesday, Turkish intelligence arrested three people including a woman during a raid in the village of Kafr Safra that is affiliated with Jinderis district in the countryside of Afrin, north Syria.

The Turkish intelligence accompanied by the Turkish-backed Military Police arrested each of the 57-year-old Abdulrahman Berimja, the 53-year-old Abdullah Khalil Murad, and Shamiran Khalil Haj Abdu without knowing the reason for arrest, an eyewitness told North Press.

They were taken to the headquarters of the Military Police in Jinderis, the sources added.

Previously, the Military Police arrested each of Abdulrahman Berimja and Abdullah Khalil Murad for malicious charges and they were released later, according to the same source.

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.
