Al-Qamishli: Resistance inside recruitment camp

KURDWATCH, December 27, 2013—On December 20, 2013, shots were exchanged in a Syrian army recruitment camp two kilometers south of the al‑Qamishli airport. Not long thereafter, several wounded were admitted to the state hospital in al‑Qamishli. It is presumed that recruits attempted to desert the camp
According to several sources the regime had promised amnesty to recruits who had failed to appear for military service without authorization should they voluntarily surrender. In addition, their military service was to be performed only in secure areas. Several hundred people reportedly responded to the call. When, contrary to assurances given, recruits were to be sent to the fiercely contested city of Dair az‑Zaur, several dozen people allegedly put up resistance.
