KURDWATCH, October 9, 2013—On October 1, 2013, the body of Kawa Khalid Husayn (b. 1962 in Burj ʿAbdallu, married, four children), member of Mustafa Jumʿa’s Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria (Azadî), was found in the village of Khaltan near Jindiras. Along with evidence of torture, the body exhibited several bullet wounds to the chest and head. Mustafa Jumʿa stated to KurdWatch: »Kawa Husayn had been held in a Democratic Union Party (PYD) prison for twelve days. Therefore, it is clear that the PYD is responsible for his death. We condemn this crime and call on the PYD to release all of our prisoners.«
