Military police chase Latakia's youth for conscription

(Zaman Al Wasl)-The military police forces search and arrest young men from streets of Latakia to send them for mandatory conscription and military reserve service.

Latakia News, pro-regime Facebook page, mentioned that patrols of the military police forces had arrested 17 young men by early afternoon of Wednesday, as dozens of patrols, on-foot or in cars kept searching for young men in streets of the city of Latakia.

Social media accounts page warns young men age between 18 and 50 to keep their identity documents and proof of deferment of their military service with them when they are out, otherwise they would be sent to hot battle fields.

Activist Mohammed al-Sahili detailed that patrols of the military police forces had become very active in streets and neighbourhoods of Latakia and they install barriers in areas of the opposition like Slayba, Skantori and al-Ramel al-Janobi to look in by-passers and pedestrians documents, especially proof of deferment or exemption of military service.

The activist mentioned via a phone call with Zaman al-Wasl that streets of Latakia had become empty of men, even university students who are already have deferment of their military service, fearing of taking them to the military service by force.

Eye-witnesses confirmed that members of the military police started entering shops and restaurant looking for men, and they managed to arrest a young man from a coffee shop in the street of Antakia.

The Syrian regime bodies have intensified their activities to capture andd recruit young men who did not join the military service, especially at the time of battles of Daraa and the Northern countryside of Hama, which resulted in losing big numbers of soldiers.
