Aleppo - SMART

On Thursday, the Free Police command in the city of Jarabulus, 125 kilometers north of Aleppo, Northern Syria, issued a circular to prevent citizens from carrying weapons except under a license from its respective offices.

The commander of the city's police, Captain Mohammed al-Abdullah, reported that they issued this circular to prevent people from indiscriminately carrying weapons and to control security. Al-Abdullah stated that a similar decision was applied in the city of al-Bab and will be applied in the city of Azaz.

Al-Abdullah that the procedures for licensing weapons take place in the police’s offices in the city. Al-Abdullah noted that the cost of licensing the pistol is 30,000 Syrian pounds and the hunting rifle is 10,000 SYP.

The police command asked the weapons shops’ owners to review their centers in the city to conduct licensing procedures. The police will take legal action against anyone who violates this decision starting from the end of next month, according to the police statement.

On Oct. 28, 2018, the al-Bab police command issued two circulars to prevent civilians and policemen from carrying weapons and grenades to limit the spread of weapons in the area.

Weapons spread in local areas of eastern and northern countrysides of Aleppo. Several decisions have been issued to control this spread, such as banning parties without security approval, preventing shooting in public places and weddings. Also, another decision was issued to empty the Azaz camps of weapons.
