Security forces in northern Syria detain journalists Sabri Fakhri and Bawar Malla Ahmad

Thursday , 10 February 2022

On Saturday, February 5, 2022, soldiers affiliated with the Democratic Party Union, the political party in power in the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria’s regional government, detained journalists Sabri Fakhri and Bawar Malla Ahmad at their homes in the city of Qamishli, according to news reports. Authorities have not disclosed their locations or any charges against them, those reports said.

Those reports did not identify which specific Democratic Party Union-affiliated group was responsible for the arrests.

Fakhri works as a correspondent for ARK TV, a local broadcaster affiliated with the Kurdistan Democratic Party opposition party, which covers Syrian and international news; he is also a member of the KDP’s Logical Committee, a local branch of the party, according to those reports. Ahmad is a reporter at Yeketi Media, a news website also affiliated with the KDP, those reports said.

Tensions have recently worsened between the Democratic Party Union and the Kurdistan Democratic Party in northern Syria, and earlier in February authorities suspended the KDP-affiliated broadcaster Rudaw TV, according to news reports and CPJ reporting.
