Civilians tell of brutal conditions inside Turkish-backed faction prisons; Evidence of potential human organ trafficking in Idlib

AFRIN and IDLIB, Syria — Several young men who were in the prisons of the Turkish-backed factions of the Syrian National Army (SNA) indicated that they have been subjected to great brutality. In addition, a center for human organs trafficking of the Turkish-backed terrorists was reportedly found in Turkish occupied areas.

Civilians in the areas under Turkish occupation have witnessed continuous violations of fundamental human rights. A family of five and two young men who managed to escape from Afrin city attested to the conditions in which civilians live in Turkish areas. Three of the group were in the prisons of the SNA in the cities of Afrin, Al-Bab, and Azaz.

They spoke about the brutality they suffered during their detention, stressing that the prisons are full of kidnapped men and women, many of whom are being held under fabricated charges. Some of the kidnapped women have their children with them.

In related news, a group of people in the Idlib countryside found a large number of human organs stored, in an apparent medical manner, in plastic containers in one of the headquarters of the factions in the region potentially indicating the systematic trafficking of human organs.
