ʿAyn al-ʿArab: State workers leave the city

KURDWATCH, July 24, 2012—On July 19, 2012, numerous state workers and employees of the Syrian security forces left the city of ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî). Shortly thereafter, members of various Kurdish parites occupied several of the empty office buildings, including city hall and the Baʿth party office, as well as intelligence service headquarters and police stations. Some state workers, including police officers, who remained behind promised their full cooperation and their subordination to the decisions of the Kurdish parties. Overnight, members of the local committees of the Kurdish National Council and the People’s Council of West Kurdistan met to discuss how to proceed. They released a declaration in which, among other things, all those employed in service offices were asked to continue working as usual.
