Al-Hasakah: PYD checks are becoming increasingly more frequent

KURDWATCH, July 17, 2012—In the last week of June and the first week of July 2012, armed units of the Democratic Union Party's (PYD) People's Protection Committees erected numerous new checkpoints. Checkpoints were repeatedly observed on access roads to al‑Qamishli, Amudah, al‑Malikiyah and Tall Ziwan near al‑Qahtaniyah. On July 2, an incident occurred at a checkpoint near Amudah when several people refused to be checked by PYD supporters. Members of both sides fired into the air; it took several hours before the situation was de-escalated.
