Al-Qamishli: Arab tribesmen organize armed rally against PYD

KURDWATCH, September 23, 2012—On September 13, 2012, several dozen armed members of the Arab Bani Sabʿa tribe organized a rally on Sabʿ-Bahrat square in the center of al‑Qamishli. The square is in the immediate vicinity of several intelligence service headquarters. Those gathered called for retribution for the attack on one of their fellow tribesmen, the director of the local water works, Ahmad al‑Salihi. A few days prior, al‑Salihi had been injured in an attack by armed assailants and his company car was stolen. A member of the Bani Sabʿa told KurdWatch that the attackers were members of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and the rally was a warning in this direction.
