Raʾs al-ʿAyn: Ceasefire between PYD and FSA is fragile

KURDWATCH, December 19, 2012—Only two days after the first armed conflicts between the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the Democratic Union Party's (PYD) People's Defense Units (YPG) [further information], renewed fighting broke out between these groups on November 21, 22, and 23 2012. On November 24, representatives of both sides entered into negotiations. Nevertheless, the ceasefire was broken on December 6, and on December 12, 13, and 14, the FSA deployed rocket launchers in severe attacks on the YPG. The FSA's attempt to expand fighting to villages between Raʾs al‑ʿAyn and ad‑Darbasiyah has failed. Since December 15, 2012, negotiations between the two sides have resumed.
