Damascus: Two Kurds arrested

KURDWATCH, May 9, 2012—On May 2, 2012, security forces with billy clubs attacked a demonstration of Democratic Union Party (PYD) supporters in Zorava, a majority Kurdish district of Damascus. ʿUthman Hamu and Mahmud ʿAbdurrahman Hasan (b. 1985 in al‑Malikiyah) were arrested in the process. In reaction, PYD supporters called for further demonstrations. In al‑Qamishli, al‑Malikiyah (Dêrik), and ʿAfrin, as well as in Zorava itself, protests took place on May 2 and 3 under the slogan »Zorava is not alone«.
