The Violations Documentation Center published a detailed report on the mechanism by which these mercenary groups impose levies in occupied Afrin during the Eid al-Adha period.

The "Sultan Murad" mercenaries have imposed the following levies on commercial shops on Rajo Street:

- 1000 Turkish Lira from each shop engaged in currency exchange, money transfer, gold sales, and wholesale food supply warehouses.

- 800 Turkish Lira from mobile phone shops and their accessories.

- 500 Turkish Lira from restaurant owners and clothing shops.

- Shops on Tallal Street were subjected to levies ranging from 600 to 750 Turkish Lira.

- 300 Turkish Lira from grocery stores and barbers.

- 2500 Turkish Lira from temporary stall vendors specializing in selling products, food items, and cosmetics during the holiday period.
