A citizen from Afrin who was kidnapped by the mercenaries of the Turkish occupation with her three-year-old daughter nearly a year ago recounted her story inside the occupation prisons, and the fate of her husband kidnapped by the Turkish intelligence whose fate remains anonymous until now.

The two mercenaries Abo Haydar and Abo Arab belong to the countryside of Aleppo, and they have a long history of killing, torturing and destroying the Syrian people, especially the Kurds.

In the notorious prison, women are subjected to various forms of torture, such as being electrocuted and beaten with water cannons, as well as insulting and immoral practices.

When I arrived at the branch of the mercenaries of the Military Police in the trade school, the mercenaries brutally beat me with water cannons, not to mention the indecent and obscene words. Whenever, they hit me, they used to say you work with the People Units, and you give information about Afrin to them."

A.A touched on the methods of investigation and torture of women during the investigation: "The mercenary investigator Abo Haydar used to ask me about how to deal with YPG, and the information I send to them. I used to answer that I do not work with anyone, and that I am a civilian who has nothing to do with anyone. He used to abuse me via My three-year-old daughter threatening her with death and giving her anesthetic pills."

She added: "Abo Haydar used to threaten me with rape and posting videos if I did not provide information, in addition to killing my daughter. He forced me to watch how women were tortured with horrific methods such as hitting with cannons and electric shocks, and I was tortured with these methods without mercy and compassion."

During her talk, A.A indicated that she had a nervous breakdown due to the scenes she saw inside the branch; torture and the treatment of the kidnappers as not human.

She added: "Many women inside the branch suffered a nervous breakdown, and they went crazy, in addition to various diseases due to the spread of dirt everywhere inside the branch and preventing its cleaning."

A.A affirmed that "some women, when they were exposed to diseases, the mercenaries used to inject them with narcotic injections and pills to disclose things they did not do."
