Autonomous Administration Extends Partial Lockdown for Two Weeks

The Autonomous Administration of North East Syria extended on Sunday, the partial lockdown in northeast Syria for 15 days starting from Monday morning.

This came on the eve of the last day of a partial lockdown that the Autonomous Administration implemented on Oct. 30, 2020, in all areas of its control for a period of ten days.

The extension came after a crisis team meeting at the Executive Board of the Autonomous Administration, which called for the closure of major markets and public utilities throughout the embargo.

The resolution included closing all places of worship, except for Friday prayers and Sunday masses, with precautionary measures taken.
