The HTS aligned Salvation Government has announced the roll-out of ID cards in Idlib. The project aims to provide documentation for those who may not have papers due to displacement, loss, destruction or inability to retrieve vital paperwork due to the danger associated with traveling to Assad regime controlled areas.
Interior Minister, Mohamed Abdelrahman, said: “The cards [are] based on the civil records within the civil affairs departments. To apply for and obtain an ID card, ten centers will be at the service of our people in different regions.”
He went on to explain the IDs and administrative fees were researched to make to process as affordable and cost effective as possible given the financial strains in the region, and that there were systems in place allowing women to attend their own centers staffed by females to obtain their IDs.
