ʿAfrin: El‑Partî member murdered

KURDWATCH, April 17, 2013—On April 6, 2013, a member of ʿAbdulhakim Bashar’s Kurdish Democratic Party in Syria (el‑Partî), ʿAli Sido ʿAbdo (b. 1978 in Raju, married, no children), was found dead near a highway near Raju. The body showed signs of torture, as well as bullet wounds to the head. ʿAbdo had been missing since April 4, 2013. Muhammad Salih Khalil, member of el‑Partî’s politburo, told KurdWatch: »The YPG repeatedly threatened ʿAbdo, but I can’t say that the YPG murdered him. For such an accusation, one needs evidence. However, the YPG and PYD have already threatened and kidnapped members of our party repeatedly; several days ago, one of our party members was even murdered« [further information on the case].
