Al-Qamishli: Number of demonstrators in the Kurdish regions increasing

KURDWATCH, March 6, 2012—Nationwide protests on March 2, 2012 resulted again in numerous dead and injured. Throughout the country, demonstrators united under the motto »Weapons to the Free Army« took to the streets to demand the fall of the regime. Protests also took place in al‑Qamishli, ʿAmudah, al‑Hasakah, al‑Malikiyah (Dêrik), al‑Qahtaniyah (Tirbesipî), al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa), al‑Darbasiyah, al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê), Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê), and ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî). A total of seven demonstrations took place in al‑Qamishli in the districts of al‑Hilaliyah, al‑ʿAntariyah, Qudurbak, Kurnish, and Qanat Suwais, with two demonstrations taking place in both Kurnish and al‑Hilaliyah. Security forces attacked demonstrators in al‑Hilaliyah with billy clubs and used tear gas. There were several arrests, but as in previous weeks, those detained are said to have been quickly released. One centralized demonstration took place in each of the cities of al‑Darbasiyah, Raʾs al‑ʿAyn, al‑Malikiyah, al‑Qahtaniyah, al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê), and al‑Jawadiyah. Two separate demonstrations took place in ʿAmudah and Ayn al‑ʿArab. Three demonstrations took place in al‑Hasakah; only one demonstration by the PYD took place in ʿAfrin.
