Al-Maʿbada: People's Protection Committees storm the headquarters of the parties of the Kurdish National Council

KURDWATCH, September 27, 2012—On September 20, 2012, armed members of the Democratic Union Party's (PYD) People's Protection Committees stormed the party headquarters of the Kurdish Union Party in Syria (Yekîtî), ʿAbdulhakim Bashar's Kurdish Democratic Party (el‑Partî), and Mustafa Jumʿa's Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria (Azadî) in al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê) respectively. They called on those present not to bear arms and to deny any armed people entrance to their offices. A member of the Yekîtî told KurdWatch, »They told our party members that only members of the People's Protection Committees had the right to bear arms«. The three parties attacked are all members of the Kurdish National Council.
