SDF arrested two civilians in Kdeiran village in Raqqa suburbs on January 24.

Two men from Kdeiran village in the western suburbs of Raqqa governorate, named as Hamid J’eifes al Muhammad and Ali Ramadan al Ja’far, were arrested by Syrian Democratic Forces during raids on their homes in the village on January 24, 2021, and taken to an undisclosed location.
We note that no members of the detainees’ families have been informed of their arrests with the phones of the detained civilians being confiscated, preventing them from contacting their families. SNHR fears that they will be subjected to torture and ultimately classified as forcibly ‘disappeared’, like approximately 85 percent of all detained persons.
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.
