Turkish intelligence MIT kidnaps six people in Turkish-occupied Afrin

In the occupied Afrin, where the Turkish state established a terror regime, crimes against the local population continue unabated.

The Turkish National Intelligence Organisation (MIT) kidnapped 6 people who were celebrating the victory of the Netherlands in occupied Afrin after the Turkish team was eliminated by losing to the Netherlands in the European Football Championship.

According to the information obtained, 4 people who were celebrating the victory of the Netherlands and 2 people who posted on their social media accounts were kidnapped by MİT.

Afrin occupied since 2018

The Turkish state established a complete terror regime in Afrin, which it occupied in 2018. Kidnapping, torture, execution, extortion and plunder have become daily crimes.

By documenting human rights violations and abductions by the Turkish army and its gangs in Afrin, the Violations Documentation Centre is trying to draw the attention of the international community to these inhumane acts. The report highlights the fact that abductees are often held arbitrarily and forcibly, and points to the deteriorating security situation in Afrin.

According to the Crime Documentation Centre, at least 28 people were abducted in April. According to the same source, at least 435 people were abducted in Afrin in 2023. Among them are children and 180 patients.
