Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan− Azad Dawood, a Kurdish resident of Derik city in northeastern Syria, was reportedly kidnapped on Sunday evening by anonymous armed men.

Dawood was on his way from the internet cafe where he used to work in central Derik to his home, before a number of “masked men” kidnap him, an eyewitness said.

The eyewitness, who conditioned anonymity for security reasons, told ARA News that the victim was abducted by four masked men, who were riding a beige car. “They took him after he left the cafe net heading his home”.

“The responsible party is still unknown, as the reason for the abduction remains unobvious,” the eyewitness added.

After four days of his abduction, Dawood’s fate remains unrevealed.

Azad Dawood, 30, has a bachelor degree from the Faculty of Science in Damascus University. After the outbreak of the Syrian crisis, Dawood returned to his hometown, Derik/Malikiyah. According to one of his family members, Dawood was never involved in any political or partisan activities.
