Additionly, the report states that in August, at least 146 raids and actions at checkpoints that resulted in cases of deprivation of freedom were documented, most of which were in Aleppo, with regime forces, followed by Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, being responsible for most of the raids, SNHR reported.
