ʿAmudah: Conflicts between supporters of the Yekîtî and supporters of the Democratic Yekîtî

KURDWATCH, May 13, 2012—During a demonstration in ʿAmudah on May 9, 2012, conflicts arose between supporters of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party in Syria (Democratic Yekîtî) and supporters of the Kurdish Union Party in Syria (Yekîtî). While Yekîtî supporters wanted to display a banner calling for federalism, supporters of the Democratic Yekîtî declined to do this, explaining that the Kurdish National Council had spoken out against this demand. Several people from both parties were injured. A Yekîtî activist told KurdWatch that the atmosphere between supporters of both parties had been tense for weeks.
