Tall Tamr: Numerous YPG‑fighters killed

KURDWATCH, December 4, 2013—On November 19, 2013, at least nine fighters for the Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) People’s Defense Units (YPG) were killed in attacks by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant at several YPG checkpoints. The attacks took place around the Arab village of Ghibash, a few kilometers southwest of Tall Tamr. The residents of the village, which was under YPG control, had secretly provided the Islamist fighters with access to the village in order to prepare for the attack against the YPG. The residents themselves had left the village. In the days that followed, the YPG carried out a broad attack on the village and its surroundings. Dozens of homes were destroyed and the Islamist forces were driven out.
