Al-Qamishli: More arrests in al-Qamishli

KURDWATCH, December 27, 2011—Nationwide protests on December 23, 2011 resulted once again in numerous dead and injured. Throughout the country, demonstrators united under the slogan »The Protocol of Death« took to the streets to demand the fall of the regime. This slogan refers to the protocol between the Arab League and the Baʿth government with regards to sending Arab observers to Syria. Protests also took place in al-Qamishli, ʿAmudah, Darbasiyah, ʿAyn al-ʿArab (Kobanî), and Raʾs al-ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê). In al-Qamishli, police used tear gas against demonstrators and arrests occurred. As in the previous week, three separate demonstrations were organized in ʿAmudah. The Democratic Union Party (PYD) protested under the slogan »The Kurdish Will«.
