Hay’at Tahrir al Sham arrested civilians in Ma’aret Misreen town in Idlib suburbs on April 24

Hay’at Tahrir al Sham arrested three civilians on April 24, 2021, from Eastern Ghouta in east of Damascus suburbs governorate, as they were passing through one of their checkpoints in Ma’aret Misreen town in the northern suburbs of Idlib governorate over an accusation of violate the sanctity of Ramadan and taken to undisclosed location.
SNHR notes that none of the detained detainees’ family members were informed of their arrests, with their phones 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 the individuals detained in Syria.
SNHR can confirm that at least 2,246 Syrian citizens are still detained or forcibly disappeared in HTS’s detention centers, constituting a grave threat to the detainees’ wellbeing, given the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
