HTS arrested two civilians from the same family in Atama village in Idlib suburbs on August 25

Muhammad al Sheikh, aged 22, and 15-year-old child Obadah al Sheikh, from Atama village in the northern suburbs of Idlib governorate, were arrested by Hay’at Tahrir al Sham personnel on August 25 during a raid on their homes in the village and taken to an undisclosed location.
SNHR notes that no members of their families were informed of their arrests, and they were prevented from contacting their family. SNHR fears that they will be subjected to torture and ultimately classified as forcibly ‘disappeared’ like approximately 85 percent of all those detained in Syria.
SNHR notes that approximately 2,116 Syrian citizens are still detained or forcibly disappeared in the HTS’s detention centers, constituting a grave threat to their wellbeing given the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
