A young man called “Hamada Hussein Ibn Hanif” from Afrin city was killed under torture in a prison of the Syrian opposition factions supported by Turkey, on Monday, his family confirmed.
The 30-year-old Hamada was arrested about 20 days ago from his home in Bilelco village in Raju district, along with others by the military police on charges of belonging to the YPG, but his family confirmed that he was a civilian and did not belong to any political or military organization.
