Al-Qamishli: Unknown persons fire at a bus with Kurdish activist

KURDWATCH, April 1, 2012—At around six pm on March 29, 2012, a public bus belonging to the Haval bus company came under machine gun fire while on the way from al‑Qamishli to al‑Malikiyah (Dêrik). According to an activist from al‑Qamishli, the bus driver survived the attack »as if by a miracle«. The driver was an activist and critic of the Democratic Union Party (PYD). Given this background, it is suspected that the PYD is responsible for the attack. According to other rumors, the attack was directed at the bus company. The company is said to have refused to provide busses for PYD supporters on Newroz. The owner of the company, Ilyas Ramo, explained to KurdWatch, however, that there were no conflicts with the PYD.
