Idlib - SMART

On Sunday, the Kafrouma Military Council and activists accused the opposition faction Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) of arresting a civil activist without charges in the city of Kafr Nubl in Southern Idlib, Northern Syria.

The HTS is an Islamist opposition faction previously known as the al-Nusra Front, consisting of fighting groups including the Haqq Brigade, Jabhat Ansar al-Din, and Jaysh al-Sunnah.

Local activists reported that masked HTS fighters arrested the activist Marwan al-Hameed from the village of Kafrouma when he entered a perfume shop in Kafr Nubl. The activists reported nothing about the reason of al-Hameed's arrest.

The activists noted that the masked fighters must belong to the HTS because they drove vehicles known to be driven by the HTS.

The Kafrouma Military Council issued a statement threatening to arrest HTS fighters proven responsible for arresting al-Hameed if the latter is not released. The Kafrouma Military Council called upon the HTS fighters from Kafrouma to be neutral.

Al-Hameed works with the the Ajax, Adam Smith, and Next Day organizations as well as other civil groups. Al-Hameed is considered one of the most prominent activists in the revolutionary action against the Syrian government, according to the activists.

On May 24, 2018, the HTS released the media activist Ahmad al-Akhras after 20 days of detention along with his colleague Rami Raslan. The HTS released the two activists after activists and journalists' demands.

Earlier, the HTS arrested members of the media team that documented the Syrian government forces and Lebanese Hezbollah siege on the town of Madaya, Western Damascus. The HTS also arrested civilians, professionals, and teachers on different charges and sometimes without charges.
