Al-Qamishli: PYD organizes protests against FSA

KURDWATCH, June 10, 2013—Ongoing fighting between the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and government troops in the week from May 25 to May 31, 2013 resulted again in numerous dead and injured. On May 31, demonstrators throughout the country once again demanded the fall of the regime. They gathered under the common motto »The principles of the revolution are taboo«. After a short break, supporters of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) yet again organized several demonstrations; they protested against FSA attacks on YPG‑positions in ʿAfrin [further information]. In al‑Qamishli, one demonstration took place in each of the districts of al‑ʿAntariyah (organized by various youth groups), Munir Habib (organized by the Kurdish National Council), as well as at the Qasimo mosque in the western district (organized by the PYD). In ʿAmudah there were two separate demonstrations, organized by the PYD and by various youth groups, including Avahî. There were also two demonstrations in al‑Hasakah, one organized by the Kurdish National Council, the other by Arab groups. Two demonstrations, organized by the PYD and the Kurdish National Council, took place in both ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî) and al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê). The Kurdish National Council organized one demonstration in each of the cities of ad‑Darbasiyah, al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa), and al‑Qahtaniyah (Tirbesipî). The Kurdish National Council’s weekly demonstrations in al‑Malikiyah and al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê) took place on Saturday. In addition, the PYD organized a demonstration in al‑Qahtaniyah (Tirbesipî) on Saturday as well as protests in ad‑Darbasiyah on Monday. There were no protests in ʿAfrin or Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê), nor in the mainly Kurdish districts of Aleppo and Damascus.
