Assad forces confiscate rebels properties in Eastern Ghouta

Assad forces confiscate rebels properties in Eastern Ghouta

The Syrian President’s forces violate the rights of civilians, looting and seizing the properties of the residents of the eastern enclave of Damascus, according to Zaman al-Wasl.

The Assad forces this week have delivered eviction orders to ten families living in homes owned by Syrian rebels who fled to northern Syria over surrender agreements. In fact, eastern Ghouta was the scene of the first major protests against the rule of al-Assad in the capital.

The order issued earlier this week by elite Republican Guard forces early, included houses, shops, land, cars and all property left behind during their displacement to the north. The reason is they betrayed their homeland and that the state has the right to take them.

In addition, the Republican Guard patrols removed a family from a house near the municipality of Ayn Tarma whose owner was displaced and is living in northern Syria.

Eight more houses had been completely seized and permanently closed, while many homes near Al-Hoda mosque were converted to military headquarters for its members.

Syria’s president forces continue to confiscate rebels properties

During the long internal armed conflict, the fall of eastern Ghouta last April was achieved in a brutal manner and changed the course of the ten-yearlong civil war.

In July and August, regime intelligence seized approximately 160 homes in Haza, Beit Sui, Misraba, Irbin and Harasta in Eastern Ghouta for the same previous reason.

The same scenario is reoccurring in all provinces that Assad forces have recently taken over in Aleppo, Qalamoun region and many other areas, not only seizing the property of the displaced, but also the properties of everyone who left these areas for fear of oppression.

More than 1,700 civilians were reportedly killed during the eight-week offensive. Since the Syrian revolution erupted in 2011, more than 560,000 people have been killed, and more than six million people have been displaced.
