SDF arrested a man and his son in Rwaished village in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on January 21

A man, named as Fawzi Dahal al Shallal, and his son, Ayman, who are originally from Khsham town in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour suburbs and have beenliving in Rwaished town which is administratively a part of Soor town in the northern suburbs of the governorate, were arrested by Syrian Democratic Forces during a raid on their home in Rwaished village on January 21, 2021, and taken to an undisclosed location.
SNHR notes that neither of the detained people’s other family members were informed of their arrests, with their phones being confiscated, preventing them from contacting their family. SNHR fears that they 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.
