Al-Qamishli: Shots exchanged between YPG and Tay

KURDWATCH, December 12, 2012—On December 1, 2012, armed members of the Arab tribe Tay occupied the building of the private al‑Maʾmun University in al‑Qamishli. They were supporters of the local tribal leader, Muhammad Faris, who is considered close to the regime. When members of the Democratic Union Party's (PYD) People's Defense Units (YPG) subsequently attempted to surround the building, shots were exchanged. Shortly thereafter, the Tay left the building. Several of them had been wounded; one person succumbed to injuries on December 5.
