Quneitra - SMART

The Syrian government forces arrested dozens of young men in the Quneitra governorate to send them for compulsory military service.  

On Thursday, local sources reported to SMART that the military security service stormed the al-Sakan al-Shababi compound in the village of Kodna in the southern Quneitra countryside and arrested 32 young men and sent them to Syrian government military bases.

The sources added that the military security called the displaced people in the compound to evacuate the apartments they reside.

The sources mentioned that the displaced people headed for the towns of southern Damascus and the western Damascus countryside, as most of them are originated from these areas.  

On Jan. 13, 2019, the Syrian government forces killed a civilian and injured two others in the village of Ayn Frikha while the forces attempted to arrest the civilians.
