Idlib - SMART

The Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) detained the media activist Durgham Hammadi and his driver, who disappeared two days ago while trying to enter a camp for press coverage in Northern 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.

On Thursday, a source close to Hammadi reported that the HTS detained him while crossing an HTS checkpoint on the road to the Bab al-Hawa crossing. Hammadi was going to film a documentary about widowed women in the camp of Urum al-Joz.

The source stated that Hammadi contacted the camp manager, Ahmed, for ten days to get a permission to film, but Ahmed postponed it until Tuesday.

The source added that two members of the Aleppo Revolutionaries Union contacted the HTS, which told them that its members detained the activist and his driver and interrogated them, while negotiations to release them continue.

On Wednesday, Hammadi's wife said that she lost contact with him on Tuesday morning. She holds the security and military authorities responsible for the persecution of journalists in the region.

According to his family, 45-year-old Hammadi is from Aleppo and lives in the city of al-Atarib after the Syrian government forcibly displaced him from his city. Hammadi works for a local news website.

Unknown persons and military factions regularly kill, kidnap and torture journalists in areas outside Syrian government control in Northern Syria. Sultan Murad Brigade members arrested and tortured the activist Bilal Saryool.
