Al-Qahtaniyah: PYD once again engages in forcible recruitment

KURDWATCH, February 7, 2015—On January 30, 2015, employees of the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), kidnapped Huzni Barzani and Yusuf Husayn on the Iraqi-Syrian border. Both men, who come from the village of Dayr Ayyub (Dêrûna Qulinga), ten kilometers north east of al‑Qahtaniyah (Tirbesipî), had tried to flee to Iraqi-Kurdistan to avoid being recruited by the PYD’s People’s Defense Units. Their smugglers betrayed them to the Asayiş, who turned them over to the YPG.
