HASAKAH, Syria

At least two Syrian civilians were tortured to death by the YPG/PKK terrorist organization in Syria’s northeastern Hasakah province, local sources said on Saturday.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to security reasons, told Anadolu Agency the civilians were abducted a month ago from the city of Deir al-Zour.

Fahad Ammash al-Haji al-Naif, who was an engineer by profession, was abducted from a village of Deir al-Zour on suspicion of belonging to the Daesh terrorist organization, they said.

The sources said the terror group delivered the body of al-Naif to his family two days ago and that signs of torture could be seen on his body.

Saleh al-Ahmad al-Yassin, another civilian who was a pharmacist by profession, had been kidnapped over a similar suspicion from the town of Muhsin in the countryside of Deir al-Zour, they said.

After the abduction, Al-Yassin was taken to the Al-Omar oil field and then to an unknown destination in the northeastern city of Qamishli, the sources added.

“YPG elements claimed that he died of a heart attack, but, signs of torture were clear on his body,” they said.

Late last month, residents in Hasakah had protested against the YPG/PKK terror group for forcibly arming the youth in the city.

The YPG/PKK is Syrian branch of the PKK terrorist network, which has waged war against Turkey for more than 30 years.

Listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU, the PKK has been responsible for the death of some 40,000 people.
