ʿAyn al‑ʿArab: PYD recruits another minor against parents’ will

KURDWATCH, April 13, 2015—On April 3, 2015, employees of the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), recruited sixteen-year-old Dilbar Ahmad Haji (b. 1999 in ʿAyn al‑ʿArab) in ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî). The girl’s father told KurdWatch: »When we demanded her return from the Asayiş, my wife was beaten, called an honorless traitor, and then thrown out«. According to the Asayiş, Dilbar Haji decided on her own to perform military service and is staying at a camp run by the PYD’s Women’s Defense Units (YPJ).
