Damascus: Three men arrested for alleged assassination plans

KURDWATCH, April 1, 2013—Anas ʿAbdulhakim al‑Husayni (b. 1983 in al‑Qamishli), Yasir Husayn Karami (b. 1979 in ʿAyn al‑ʿArab [Kobanî], member of the SAWA‑Coalition) and ʿAbdurraʾuf ʿAbdulilah al‑Husayni (b. 1983 in al‑Qamishli) were arrested by employees of the State Security Service in Damascus on December 31, 2012. Anas al‑Husayni was a manager of a cleaning company that specialized in state facilities (including sensitive buildings like the Foreign Ministry and the Presidential Palace). The other two people arrested worked as foremen for the same company. On March 2, 2013, Syrian television channels broadcast an interview with Anas al‑Husayni in which he confessed to having planned an assassination attempt on the Syrian president. Thus far neither family members nor attorneys have had access to the detainees.
