KURDWATCH, October 13, 2012—On October 7, 2012, Peoples’ Protection Unit members of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) attacked a demonstration by various youth groups in al‑Malikiyah (Dêrik) who gathered in remembrance of the assassination of Mishʿal at‑Tammu one year ago [further information on the case]. An activist told KurdWatch: »They came with four or five vehicles, armed with machine guns. In addition, many of them were masked and armed with clubs or iron pipes. They beat us brutally and without warning, destroying our speakers and all of our media representatives' recording equipment. Moreover they ripped up the Kurdish flag and threw it to the ground.«
