ʿAyn al‑ʿArab: PYD forces release of three members

KURDWATCH, April 22, 2012—On April 19, 2012, supporters of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) organized a rally in ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî) to push for the release of Kaniwar ʿAli, Ibrahim ʿAli, and Zakariya Shaykh from custody. The three members of the PYD's People's Protection Committee had been arrested that same day. Supporters at the rally threatened that if the three were not released, they would free them themselves. The detainees were released from custody a few hours later.
