Al-Jawadiyah: PDK‑S remembers slain politician

KURDWATCH, March 4, 2015—On February 22, 2015, the Kurdistan Democratic Party – Syria (PDK‑S) conducted a memorial event near al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa) for Nasruddin Birhik, who died on 21. February 2012 following an assassination attempt [further information]. Approximately six thousand people took part in the event. Birhik was a member of the central committee of ʿAbdulhakim Bashar’s Kurdish Democratic Party in Syria (el‑Partî), a predecessor of the PDK‑S. Evidence suggests that Birhik was killed by supporters of the Democratic Union Party (PYD). His death was never properly investigated.
