SDF arrested a civilian in al Baghouz town in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on December 30

A man from al Baghouz town in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, named as Abdullah Raja al Mheidi, was arrested on December 30, during a raid on his home in al Allawi neighborhood in the town and taken to an undisclosed location.
SNHR notes that no member of Abdullah’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 3,398 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.
