Idlib - SMART

On Tuesday, investigators and police officers of the Salvation Government in areas controlled by the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham went on a strike in the city of Idlib, Northern Syria, to demand their salaries.

An anonymous source reported that the investigators and police officers went on the strike because they have not received their salaries in three months. The source added that they did not show up for work on Tuesday as a first step of the strike.

The source said that the police officers threatened to increase their protests if the Salvation Government does not respond to their demands. The source stated that they previously called on the Salvation Government to give them their salaries several times, without success.

The Salvation Government threatened not to pay the salaries of 13 professors at the Idlib University because they did not sign an exclusive contract. The contract includes a guarantee that the professors will not work in any educational institution that is not registered with the Salvation Government's Higher Education Council as of July 8, 2018.

The Salvation Government was founded by the Founding Body, which was formed during the Syrian General Conference in Northern Idlib in October 2017.
