Aleppo - SMART

On Sunday, the military police in the city of Afrin, 43 kilometers north of Aleppo, Northern Syria, released the civil activist Rania al-Halabi four days after detaining her without charges.

Activists reported to SMART that the deputy police commander, Abu al-Fawz, said that they detained al-Halabi to protect her after she received threats. Abu al-Fawz did not specify the source of the threats.

On Friday, al-Halabi's husband, Mahmoud al-Homsi, accused the al-Rahman Legion of the Free Syrian Army of detaining al-Halabi, adding that al-Halabi was detained after she raised a lawsuit against a commander from the al-Rahman Legion. In the lawsuit, al-Halabi demanded the commanders to return $250 thousand dollars that the legion confiscated when they detained al-Halabi in Eastern Ghouta in 2014.

During a televised interview, the al-Rahman Legion spokesman Wael Alwan denied the legion's involvement in al-Halabi's detention, adding that the military police detained her after reviewing files submitted by people who used to work in the unified judiciary in Eastern Ghouta.

Last Wednesday, the military police detained the activist Rania al-Halabi from the Syrian Kurds Independent Association without clear charges. The military police detained al-Halabi after they stormed an activity center of the Syrian Kurds Independent Association, which is managed by al-Halabi.

The association defines itself as an independent national Kurdish volunteer gathering that aims to transfer the Kurdish independent opinion to several local, regional, and international forums.

In recent months, medical workers, activists, civilians, and humanitarian workers in areas outside the Syrian government forces' control in Northern and Western Syria have faced harassment by opposition military factions, including detainment.
