ʿAyn al‑ʿArab: Prisoner tortured in PYD‑prison

KURDWATCH, May 4, 2015—On April 10, 2015, the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), kidnapped twenty-eight-year-old Sulayman Mahmud Mashʿal in ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî). The justification for his abduction was that he had been trafficking weapons. After his family paid two hundred thousand Syrian lira, Mashʿal was released on April 20. He was severely tortured while in prison. His arms and legs were broken in numerous places.
