ʿAmudah: PYD’s security service kidnaps activist

KURDWATCH, July 18, 2013—On July 8, 2013, employees of the Asayiş, the Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) security service, took ʿAbdurrahim Tikhubi, member of the Cooperation of the Youth of ʿAmudah, from his home. In an interview a few days prior, the chairman of the PYD, Salih Muslim Muhammad, had described collaboration with the Cooperation of the Youth of ʿAmudah as treason. Since the PYD’s People’s Defense Units (YPG) attacked a demonstration in ʿAmudah on June 27, 2013 [further information], members of this youth group have been pursued by PYD.
