Al-Hasakah: YPG releases leader of the Kurdish Intervention Forces

KURDWATCH, June 13, 2013—On May 29, 2013, Masʿud Hasan, a member of Lazgin Mahmud Fakhri’s Kurdish Democratic Party—Syria and leader of the Kurdish Intervention Forces, was released by the Asayiş (security service) of the Democratic Union Party (PYD). He was arrested on March 15 by members of the PYD’s People’s Defense Units [further information on the case]. A member of the Intervention Forces told KurdWatch »Hasan was only released after he signed an agreement declaring the dissolution of the Intervention Forces. However, the YPG published a declaration according to which the Intervention Forces will dissolve and its members will join the YPG. That is not true. We will do everything to defend the Kurdish people.«
