SDF arrested a civilian in Hawayij Thiab Jazira village in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on November 23

A man named Ahmad Hasan al Manakhir, from Hawayij Thiab Jazira village in the western suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, was arrested by Syrian Democratic Forces during a raid on his workplace in the village on November 23, 2020, and taken to an undisclosed location.
SNHR notes that no member of Ahmad’s family was informed of his arrest, with his phone being confiscated, preventing him from contacting his family. SNHR fears that he will be subjected to torture and ultimately classified as forcibly ‘disappeared’ like approximately 85 percent of the individuals detained in Syria.
SNHR notes that about 3,337 Syrian citizens are still detained or forcibly disappeared in the SDF’s detention centers, constituting a grave threat to their wellbeing given the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
