Al-Qamishli: PYD attack in June leads to the suspension of most demonstrations

KURDWATCH, July 21, 2013—Ongoing fighting between the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and government troops in the week from July 6 to July 12, 2013 resulted again in numerous dead and injured. On July 12, demonstrators throughout the country renewed their call for the fall of the regime. They gathered under the common slogan »Until we change that which is within us«. In al‑Qamishli there was only one small demonstration in the district of Munir Habib this week. After the youth movements in ʿAmudah decided not to organize any more demonstrations for the time being in order to »protect societal peace« and prevent »intra-Kurdish bloodshed«, many youth groups in al‑Qamishli and other regions followed suit in solidarity. The attack by the Democratic Union Party (PYD) on a demonstration in ʿAmudah at the end of June [further information] has thus led other groups to suspend their political activities.
