ʿAfrin: Asayiş has instructions to halt all meetings of the PDK-S

KURDWATCH, September 11, 2015—On September 9, 2015, approximately fifteen employees of the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), dispersed a meeting of the Kurdistan Democratic Party – Syria (PDK‑S) in the village of Shaykh Bilal, twenty‑five kilometers north of ʿAfrin. They kidnapped PDK‑S central committee member ʿAbdurrahman Apo and the party member ʿAli Bilal, in whose house the meeting took place. Both were released a few hours later. Apo told KurdWatch: »During the kidnapping, the Asayiş treated us roughly. They bound my hands. Although they were friendly at the station, they told me that they have instructions to halt all meetings of the PDK‑S.«
