SDF arrested a civilian in Skeirou village in Raqqa suburbs on November 25

A man from Skeirou village in the northern suburbs of Raqqa governorate, named as Assad Abdul Qader Mahmoud al Ali, was arrested by Syrian Democratic Forces on November 25, 2020, during a raid on his home in the village on charges of dealing with the Syrian National Army, and taken to an undisclosed location.
SNHR notes that no member of the detained man’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 approximately 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.
