Al-Qamishli: PYD recruits fourteen-year-old against her parents’ will

KURDWATCH, May 30, 2015—On May 26, 2015, Jailan Akram ʿUmar (b. on August 20, 2001 in al‑Qamishli) did not return to her parents’ house after going for a walk. The family assumed that Jailan was recruited by the YPG. Several family members then gathered in front of a barracks of the Democratic Union Party’s People’s Defense Units (YPG) in al‑Qamishli and demanded the under-aged girl’s return. The commanders of the barracks refused to speak with those gathered. The family members later saw the girl being taken from the barracks by car.
