Al-Qamishli: Writer survives assassination attempt

KURDWATCH, June 10, 2012—In the early morning of June 4, 2012, shots were fired at the writer Taha Ahmad Khalil (b. 1961 in al‑Qamishli). Two unknown persons knocked at Khalil's door and asked him in Kurdish if he would lend them his car. When Khalil became suspicious and backed away, one of the men shot in his direction, but missed him. Khalil told KurdWatch: »I have been threatened by unknown persons over the internet several times. I believe these people are acting on the orders of a Kurdish group that always appears under a new name.«
