Homs - SMART

The residents of the northern Homs countryside, which is now controlled by the Syrian government forces in the center of the country, complain about frequent harassment at government roadblocks. The harrassment has been occuring since the residents complained to the Russians about the ill-treatment of members of the government forces.

Local sources told SMART that a group of people from Northern Homs complained to the Russian forces in the city of al-Rastan about a large number of government checkpoints on the al-Rastan - Homs road and the taxes imposed on cars and transport.

The sources added that the people were surprised that a day after they filed their complaints about ill-treatment, the checkpoints continued to arrest vehicles, delay their movement, check ID cards and settlement papers, and try to provoke civilians, with the words "You have filed a complaint against us to the Russians, so bear the consequences."

The sources added that the members at the checkpoints make things easier for people who pay them bribes and let them leave immediately, while the rest suffer from a multitude of questions and restrictions for a period, before being allowed to pass.

On May 16, the government forces seized control of Northern Homs and Southern Hama after the last group of forcibly displaced people left as part of an agreement imposed by Russia on civil and military bodies and people in the region.

Since the completion of the agreement, the government has not stopped annoying civilians; many have complained about the lack of necessary services, continued arrests and the imposition of royalties on transportation, as well as the erection of government checkpoints in the northern countryside of Homs contrary to the provisions of the agreement.
