The Human Rights Organization, Afrin - Syria, indicated, in information it published, that armed clashes broke out between the mercenaries of the so-called “Elite Army” and settlers from the Mawali tribe near the Nabi Houri Castle in the occupied Afrin countryside.

The reason for the armed clashes, according to the organization, is a dispute over seized land belonging to the indigenous people of Afrin.

 It indicated in the details that mercenaries from the “Elite Army” led by the mercenary nicknamed “Abu Awad” attacked settlers from the Al-Mawali tribe who were cultivating seized land near the village of Nabi Houri, under the pretext that the land is located within the sector controlled by the mercenaries of the “Elite Army ".

The organization added that a verbal altercation took place between the two parties, after which the mercenaries confiscated the settlers' car, seized their weapons, and expelled them from the land, causing clashes to break out, as a result of which two mercenaries were killed.

The mercenaries stationed near Nabi Houri Castle then fired machine-gun bullets at the settlers from the Mawali tribe, wounding 4 of them, including a child and a woman, who were subsequently transferred to Afrin hospitals.

The Human Rights Organization, Afrin - Syria, confirmed that tension still exists, amid the Mawali tribe’s military buildup in the region.
