Şêxmûs Qasim Mistefa, who was kidnapped by the Turkish-backed Feyleq El Şam, was murdered in Afrin (Efrin) in North East Syria after being subjected to torture, according to a report by the Hawar News Agency.
Afrin is under the control of paramilitary groups that are backed by Turkey. Fourteen days ago Mistefa, who was 67 years old, was kidnapped and murdered by one of those groups.
According to local sources, Feyleq El Şam called Mistefa’s family so they could receive Mistefa’s body. The family went to the prison in the Raco district in the early morning to receive his body, which reportedly showed visible signs of torture.
