ʿAfrin: YPG attacks Kurdish village

KURDWATCH, August 18, 2013—On August 12, 2013, dozens of fighters for the Democratic Union Party's (PYD) People's Defense Units (YPG) stormed the village of Mirkan (approximately ten kilometers west of ʿAfrin) and searched numerous homes. An activist told KurdWatch: »The attackers frightened the residents and in some cases beat them. Private weapons that they need for self-protection were confiscated.« Three members of Mustafa Jumʿa's Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria, Ayman Mustafa Sino, Muhammad Sulayman Seydo, and Muhammad Anwar Sino, were kidnapped by the YPG.
