Today, the Criminal Security Branch in Deir Ezzor released Amani Jamil Al-Habshan and her infant several days after their arrest, according to Deir Ezzor 24 network correspondent.

Our correspondent added that “Al-Habshan” is from Muheimidah town, which is under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the western Deir Ezzor countryside. She went to Deir Ezzor city to obtain official papers (a personal Identity card and a passport), but she was arrested at the police station of the western part, and was handed over to the Criminal Security Branch to be placed in prison without any clear charge.

Later, it turned out that the reason for her arrest was her surname and her kinship with the martyr “Abdel Moneim al-Habshan”.

Abdel Moneim Jamil al-Habshan is one of the first martyrs in Deir Ezzor province. He was killed by the security forces on 6 June 2011. Massive demonstrations were held during his funeral in Deir Ezzor, and al-Assad hospital was named after him at the time the Free Army was controlling Deir Ezzor.
