SNA arrested two women in Breimja village in Aleppo suburbs on October 17

Two women, named as Mazkin Muhammad and Suzan Faadel, from Breimja village which is administratively a part of Afrin city in the northern suburbs of Aleppo governorate, aged 28 and 33 respectively, were arrested by Syrian National Army forces during raids on their homes in the village on October 17, 2021 and taken to an undisclosed location.

SNHR notes that no members of the women’s families have been informed of their arrests or whereabouts, and 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 all detained persons in Syria.

SNHR demands that financial and therapeutic compensation be provided to the victims and their families, as well as insisting on an end to all arbitrary arrests which aim to spread terror among Syrians and to the blackmail of families, and we further demand that the fates of thousands of people disappeared by the regime be revealed as we have serious concern for the detainees’ wellbeing, given the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
