Al-Qamishli: Kurdish demonstrations largely peaceful

KURDWATCH, April 4, 2011—During nationwide protests on April 1, 2011, there were once again deaths in Damascus. In contrast, the demonstrations in al-Qamishli, ʿAmudah, al-Hasakah, and ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî) were largely peaceful. In al-Hasakah, security forces are said to have driven protesters apart and shot into the air, while temporary arrests were made in al-Hasakah and ʿAyn al‑ʿArab. The protesters in the primarily Kurdish regions displayed their solidarity with protesters in Darʿa and Latakia by displaying only Syrian flags.
