“Majid Al-Araj attacked us, attacked our house and homes of my uncles, Alharaq family. They attacked our sold land and the rest of the square is our right. He came with battalions and armed men assaulting, he is wanted by security forces, everyone knows him and the cases of corruption are in the courts.
My father and uncles came out to reason with him in a friendly manner, but Majed Al-Araj dealt with them with weapons, he and his gunmen killed three of my uncles, they say that three of my cousins are in critical care, a self-defense event, and it was said that Majed died.
Then gangs came and attacked our homes, they stole everything in our house, they did not even respect women and kidnapped two young cousins of Issam al-Haraq until now, I do not know where are father and brother, are they alive, dead, or kidnapped?
I fled and the gunmen are still looking for any member from Alharaq family, they want to kill anyone belongs to Alharaq house.
Unfortunately, it was announced that Majed Al-Araj was killed, as if he is the victim and the hero and we are the killers and aggressors!!!
I hope you let people know the truth and a committee must go to the site and ask people what happened and who attacked, see how they looted our homes and our land, my uncles were killed and my cousins were injured, they kidnapped children and abuse women, I do not know the fate of my father and brother, I am alone!
I wish they would do us justice and a committee would go to the crime scene, in Alammad quarter, behind Al Sharq Tile Factory and know who is aggressor, and he has criminal record.
My Uncle Abdo Muhammad al-Harq, Issam Muhammad al-Harq and Khaled Muhammad al-Harq died.
My father and brother, I do not know their fate, alive or dead, and the injured are my cousins in Al-Barihi Hospital, I receive news that Majid Al-Araj’s gang wants to liquidate them in the hospital.
This is a disaster and a tragedy that my family are dying, women, and children are displaced. Please take my case to the people.” A message from one of AlHaraq family women said.
