Three more civilians kidnapped in Turkish-occupied Afrin
The Turkish forces and mercenary groups under Turkish control continue targeting civilians in the occupied regions in North and East Syria.
Sources in the Turkish-occupied Afrin canton in northern Syria report that the so-called “military police” of the occupation forces have kidnapped three civilians in the Sherawa district.
Accordingly, the three family members, two of whom are women, were abducted and taken to an unknown location.
The three civilians were named as Binevşa (25), Eymen Mihemed Kêfo (28), Novîn Mihemed Elî Kêfo (25).
Most recently, Kurdish lawyer Necah Omer Eros was abducted by the Turkish intelligence service. The 52-year-old woman is from the village of Kûîra in Rajo district, and jihadists acting as "civilian police" are also said to have been involved in the kidnapping on October 23.
On October 17, two women from the village of Birîmce in Afrin’s Mabata district were abducted by the troops of the Turkish occupation regime. The 28- and 33-year-old Kurdish women were taken to an unknown location. Just a week earlier, 32-year-old pregnant Nemat Bahjat Sheikho bled to death after suffering torture at the headquarters of the Turkish intelligence service. The aftermath of her husband, who had been abducted with her, remains unknown.
According to the Afrin human rights organization, 14 women and girls have been abducted in the occupied zone since the beginning of October. 32-year-old Nemat Bahjat Sheikho bled to death in a heavily pregnant state after suffering torture at the headquarters of the Turkish intelligence service MIT. She was arrested by the so-called "civil police" during a check-up at the hospital and transferred to the MIT.
The Turkish state, with a soldiery of jihadists and right-wing extremists, established a regime of terror over Afrin which they occupied in March 2018. Kidnappings, looting, ransomware, and displacement have been the order of the day ever since. In the past two months alone, more than 300 abductions have been recorded in Afrin, and 25 of those abducted were women. At least six civilians were killed
