ʿAfrin: Relatives of prisoners storm PYD‑event

KURDWATCH, November 3, 2014—On October 25, 2014, approximately one hundred people stormed a PYD literary event in ʿAfrin. They demanded the release of their relatives, who are all members of the Kurdistan Democratic Party – Syria (PDK‑S) and were kidnapped by the Democratic Union Party (PYD). They are currently being held in a prison in ʿAfrin. According to KurdWatch’s information, female relatives of the prisoners spontaneously organized the demonstration. The prisoners themselves had started a hunger strike a few days before the demonstration. The PYD ended its event; there were no other known ramifications.
