Al-Qahtaniyah: Security forces prevent demonstration

KURDWATCH, January 9, 2012—Nationwide protests on January 6, 2012 resulted again in numerous dead and injured. Throughout the country, demonstrators united under the motto »If you help Allah[´s cause], He will help you« took to the streets to demand the fall of the regime. Protests also took place in al‑Qamishli, ʿAmudah, Darbasiyah, ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî), and Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê). Supporters of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) unsuccessfully attempted to disrupt a demonstration in al-Qamishli by holding up PKK flags and pictures of Abdullah Ocalan. As in previous weeks, three separate demonstrations took place in ʿAmudah. In al-Qahtaniyah (Tirbesipî) security forces prevented a demonstration from happening.
