Al-Qamishli: PYD attacks youth group demonstrations

KURDWATCH, July 5, 2013—Ongoing fighting between the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and government troops in the week from June 22 to June 28, 2013 ended once more with numerous dead and injured. On June 28, demonstrators throughout the country once again demanded the fall of the regime. They gathered under the common slogan »The revolution smolders, the opposition does not«. In al‑Qamishli, two demonstrations were organized against the PYD; they called for the condemnation of those responsible for the deaths in ʿAmudah on June 27 [further information on the case]. The demonstration in the district of al‑ʿAntariyah (organized by various youth groups) was attackd by dozens of armed PYD‑supporters; they shot into the air and destroyed the loudspeakers and the stereo equipment. They also took control of the vehicle that was transporting the equipment. The following day, the totaled vehicle was returned to its owner. The demonstration ended following the attack. The second demonstration in Munir Habib (organized by the Kurdish National Council) was peaceful. Due to the tense situation, there were no demonstrations in other Kurdish cities.
