Al-Qamishli: No to UN peacekeeping forces

KURDWATCH, December 14, 2012—Nationwide protests on December 7, 2012, resulted again in numerous dead and injured. Throughout the country, demonstrators united under the slogan »No to [UN] peacekeeping forces in Syria« took to the streets to demand the fall of the regime. The People's Council of West Kurdistan did not organize any demonstrations on this Friday. Due to heavy rain, participation in the Kurdish National Council's demonstrations was very low. Only two demonstrations took place in al‑Qamishli in the districts of al‑ʿAntariyah (organized by the Biratî, Rojava, Shaikh Maʿshuq and Martyr Farhad youth groups) and Munir Habib (organized by the Kurdish National Council). One demonstration, organized by the Kurdish National Council and various youth groups, took place in each of the cities of ʿAmudah and ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî). There were two demonstrations in al‑Hasakah. In al‑Malikiyah (Dêrik) and al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê), the weekly demonstrations by the Kurdish National Council took place on Saturday, not on Friday. There were no protests in ad‑Darbasiyah, al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa), or Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê), nor in the mainly Kurdish districts in Aleppo. In the Kurdish district of Ruknuddin in Damascus, supporters of the Free Syrian Army organized nighttime demonstrations.
