Al-Darbasiyah: Another teacher transferred

KURDWATCH, February 17, 2011—On January 25, 2011, the education authorities in al‑Hasakah made the decision to transfer teacher Jihad Rashad ʿAliko (b. 1973, married, one child, brother of the former chairman of the Kurdish Union Party in Syria, Yekîtî) from the girls’ school in al‑Darbasiyah to a school in the entirely Arab village of Tall Tishrin. The transfer was justified as being »in the interest of the general public«. ʿAliko suspects that the reason for his transfer was his participation in a minute of silence against Decree 49 on September 10, 2010.
