Tahrir al-Sham releases Zaman al-Wasl reporter in Aleppo
   Joma'a Haj Hamdo
(Zaman Al Wasl)- Militant Hayat Tahrir al-Sham group has freed Zaman al-Wasl reporter in northern Aleppo province after a week of arbitrary arrest.
 
Members of the former Syrian offshoot of al-Qaeda arrested Juma'a Haj Hamdo from his house last Wednesday in the western countryside of Aleppo and took him to an unknown destination.

Fathi Ibrahim Bayoud, the editor-in-chief of Zaman al-Wasl assured that Hamdo was arrested over his covering for the suffering of people in HTS-held areas.

Al-Hamdo's arrest is a new attempt by those who seek to silence free speech and revolutionary journalism, he added.
 
For over 15 years, Juma'a has been working as a reporter and photojournalist, seven of it he has been covering the war and people's suffering for Zaman al-Wasl.
 
He was detained in 2011 by the regime security for his pro-revolution media activities.
 
 Like ISIS (Daesh), Tahrir al-Sham wants to create an Islamic state of its own, according to the Independent. That dream makes the whole region under its control in northwestern Syria a ground for mounting violations and abuses.
 
The formerly-known Jabhat al-Nusra has detained and killed most of its opponents including citizen journalists and human rights advocates.
 
Raed al-Fares and Hamoud Junaid, two Syrian pro-democracy activists and citizen journalists, were shot dead Friday by Tahrir al-Sham last November in the village of Kafrabel in northern Idlib province.
 
According to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), since May 2018, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham has detained at least two journalists in northwestern Syria.
