Militant Tahrir al-Sham executes media activist in Idlib

(Zaman Al Wasl)- Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham executed a Syrian media activist last April by a gunshot in his detention centre, monitoring group and brother said Tuesday. 
 
Samer al-Salloum, 34, was a victim of the arbitrary arrest by the former Syrian offshoot of al-Qaeda over his critics to its mounting abuses, according to his brother journalist Mohamed al-Salloum.

Al-Salloum was arrested on December 26, 2017, by gunmen affiliated with Hay’at Tahrir al Sham from his place of residence in Kafranbel town and taken to al-Uqab Prison in the southern suburbs of Idlib province, the Syrian Network for Human Rights said.

Al-Salloum was the printing and distribution officer at al-Gherbal Magazine and Zawraq Children Magazine in Kafranbel.

Formerly-known as Jabhat al-Nusra, the group has detained and killed most of its opponents including citizen journalists and human rights advocates.

Raed al-Fares and Hamoud Junaid, two pro-democracy Syrian activists and citizen journalists, were shot dead by Tahrir al-Sham last November in Kafranbel. 

According to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), since May 2018, Tahrir al-Sham has detained at least two journalists in northwestern Syria.

Like the Islamic State, Tahrir al-Sham wants to create an Islamic state of its own. This ambition makes the whole region under its control in northwestern Syria a fertile ground for mounting violations and abuses.
