Idlib: Forty Kurds kidnapped

KURDWATCH, May 28, 2015—On May 24, 2015, fighters for the oppositional Nuruddin-az‑Zanki battalion hijacked a bus with around forty Kurds on board near the city of Binnish, approximately eight kilometers northeast of Idlib. The Kurds were returning from Damascus to ʿAfrin. The hijackers demanded the release of an unspecified prisoner of the Democratic Union Party (PYD). With the exception of three female passengers and the driver, those kidnapped were released the following day.
