     Body of decapitated child found in Afrin

Kidnappings, killings and getting away from law continues in Kurdish city of Afrin in West Kurdistan or Northeastern Syria, where in a different manner but like the ISIS method, the city's residents found the beheaded body of an almost 14-year-old boy.


The Turkish army and its militia occupied Afrin more than two years ago, to start painful chapters against civilians from incidents of theft, murder, rape and imposition of royalties.


Our correspondent in Qamishli informed us that the residents of Al-Zaydiyah neighborhood in Afrin city found the body of a child without a head, pointing out that the residents accused the pro-Turkish army militia of carrying out the crime, which is the second of its kind, where the body of a beheaded young man was found in beginning of this March.


For its part, the Violations Documentation Center in northeastern Syria announced during a statement that the military police in Afrin yesterday announced the arrest of a gang accused of kidnapping children consisting of 5 people, who were blackmailing their families in exchange for the release of their children.


The statement added that the city of Idlib also witnessed the kidnapping of two girls, one of whom is a child (Manar Kafaya and Areej Kafaya) while they were going towards the town of Darkush.
