HTS arrested a media activist and his brother in Darkoush town in Idlib suburbs on May 7

A media activist, named as Muhammad al Na’san al Dabl, from Darkoush town in the western suburbs of Idlib governorate, who works for the Orient News Channel was arrested along with his brother, Omar, by Hay’at Tahrir al Sham personnel on May 7, 2021, in front of the town’s al Rahma Hospital over an argument with the HTS personnel in the same location, with both being taken to an undisclosed location.
SNHR notes that neither of the 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.
