Member of the political committee of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Abdullah Kaddo, has highlighted that the practices of the Assad regime forces remain consistent with those witnessed at the onset of the revolution in 2011. Kaddo emphasized that the regime forces and security services, rooted in arrogance, violence, and coercion, continue to exhibit the same problematic behavior towards defenseless civilians. He noted that these forces lack respect for civilians, failing to differentiate between them, and have not altered their approach since the revolution’s inception.
Despite the collaboration between the PYD militia and the Assad regime forces in various areas, Kaddo underscored that regime forces intermittently impose sieges on civilians in the Sheikh Maqsoud and Ashrafieh neighborhoods in Aleppo, controlled by the PYD militia.
Kaddo further revealed that, despite the military cooperation between PYD-affiliated units and regime forces in rural Aleppo, civilians traveling to and from PYD-held areas in rural Aleppo continue to face harassment from regime forces.
The Syrian Network for Human Rights reported on Thursday that members of the Fourth Division of the Assad regime recently arrested 10 women in Aleppo. These women were apprehended at a regime checkpoint in the Bab Jenin neighborhood while en route to the neighborhoods of Sheikh Maqsoud and Al-Ashrafieh in Aleppo. They were subsequently taken to the branch of the State Security Forces in Aleppo, with the women originating from the Afrin region in rural Aleppo.
