14 more civilians abducted in Turkish occupied Afrin

The Turkish invasion army and allied mercenaries continue with their barbaric practices in the Afrin Canton under their occupation for over a year now.

More reports of abductions are coming through from the Afrin Canton which remains under the occupation of the Turkish army and allied jihadist groups since March 2018.

Hawar News Agency (ANHA) reported that occupation forces have kidnapped 14 more civilians in Afrin.

While 13 of those abducted are residents of the Cuqe village, an Arab man was kidnapped in Jindires district.

The inhumane practices of the Turkish forces and allied militias in Afrin have increased, especially in recent months. Bombing, kidnapping, torture and detention have become daily acts of the occupation forces. During the last two months alone, five hundred people have been abducted by the invaders. The aftermath of many of them remains unknown.

Attacks of the Turkish state and its mercenary allies against the Afrin city and region began on 20 January 2018 and the invasion of the city by land was carried out on 18 March.

Since the invasion, war crimes have been systematically committed in the region. The demographic structure of the region is being changed and crimes such as seizure of local people's properties, kidnapping of civilians for ransom, torture or executions have been going on on a daily basis.
