Tall Tamr: Fighting between YPG and FSA

KURDWATCH, February 26, 2013—On February 14, 2013, shots were exchanged in Tall Tamr (thirty-seven kilometers southeast of Raʾs al‑ʿAyn) between fighters of the Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) People’s Defense Units (YPG) and various Free Syrian Army (FSA) battalions. The FSA had attempted to capture a cattle farm. Several of its fighters were killed in the clash. Since the withdrawal of government employees and regime security forces in early December 2012, Tall Tamr has been administered by a committee of Arab and Kurdish residents.
