Idlib - SMART

On Saturday, the head of public relations and deputy director of the newly formed Syrian Association for the Liberation of Detainees, Abdul Rahman Qontar, said that the association is leading a "serious" initiative, sponsored and guaranteed by Russia, to free thousands of people detained by the Syrian government in exchange for loyalist forces' fighters detained by the opposition factions.

Qontar reported that the task of the association is to coordinate between the opposition factions, and to list the names of the detainees from both the factions and the loyalist forces.

Qontar said that the association reached out to most opposition factions, some of which were cooperative, as other factions did not respond to the initiative yet. Qontar called on all the factions to cooperate and list the names of the detainees.

The director of the association is Mohammad Bahaa Alloush from the village of Iblin in Idlib. Allush is commander of the Abu Omeir Battalion of the Ahrar al-Sham Islamic Movement, which is a componnt of the Syrian Liberation Front. Allush has participated in prisoner exchange operations between Ahrar al-Sham and the Syrian government before.

Qontar, the deputy director of the association, is from the village of Ayn Laroz in Idlib and he recently lives in Turkey. Qontar was the former commander of the Seventh Brigade of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), replacing his brother who was detained by the al-Nosra Front, and he was himself detained by the loyalist forces.

Earlier today, several figures from Northern Syria announced the formation of the Syrian Association for Liberating Detainees.

Earlier, the Commission for Detainees Affairs, along with factions from the FSA and the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, freed several detainees in Northern Syria, in exchange for the Syrian government to free several fighters and civilians.
