Al-Qamishli: Kurdish National Council calls upon Kurds not to leave Syria

KURDWATCH, August 31, 2015—At its session in al‑Qamishli on August 29, 2015, the Kurdish National Council resolved to demonstrate against the migration of the Kurdish population from Syrian-Kurdistan and the associated »dangerous« demographic change. Demonstrations are planned for September 5, 2015. However, last week the Kurdish National Council declined to demonstrate against forcible recruitment and arbitrary arrests by the Democratic Union Party (PYD) [further information]. Young men in particular are leaving the region due to the forcible recruitments carried out by the PYD [download report on forcible recruitment].
