Syrian regime deceives to justify its continued arrests of civilians

Bashar Assad has killed thousands and forced millions displaced

Observers have said that the Syrian regime is utilizing deceitful methods to justify its arrests of civilians, pointing out that Syrian government-supported militias occasionally trigger clashes in the cities of Ghouta in order for military forces to launch large-scale arrests.

Sources pointed out that there was a recent clash near the city of Douma, and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad launched large-scale arrests in the city the next day, which spread to other towns.

The sources said that the Iranian-backed Syrian regime is triggering these clashes to send a message to Moscow to intervene and spread Russian police in the cities and towns of eastern Ghouta, as well as a way to insist that “terrorist gangs” remain in the area.

"Assad is arresting through different means, either to initiate proceedings against youth who previously participated in military operations against him or under the pretext of forced conscription," the sources said.
