The Turkish-backed Syria National Army sought to establish judicial institutions to control the security and adjudicate on military cases, establishing two courts for military individuals in Tal Abyad and Ras Al-Ain.
This extends the jurisdiction of the military judiciary to all liberated areas under the control of the National Army in Euphrates Shield, Olive Branch and Peace Spring.
The Director of the Military Justice Department, Brigadier Arafat Al-Hamoud, told Zaman Al-Wasl that the aim of establishing these two tribunals is to limit violations committed by the National Army, and to provide a judicial authority to adjudicate on these matters.
"This step is very important because there are many complaints and abuses attributed to the National Army, to hold these elements accountable in the case of evidence of their abuses and to redress in the case of wrongful complaints."
In turn, the Secretary-General of the Syrian Justice Association and the judicial inspection official, Dr. Mohammed Nour Hamidi, said that the presence of a military judiciary in Tal Abyad and Ras Al-Ain would reduce the abuses with the risk of punishment.
