ʿAmudah: PYD calls on Arab refugees to leave Kurdish cities

KurdWatch, October 10, 2015—On October 6, 2015, the transitional administration for the canton of Jazirah, which was appointed by the Democratic Union Party (PYD), orally decreed that all Arab refugees who have fled to the Kurdish regions that it administers should either leave these areas or move to refugee camps. According KurdWatch’s research, a written decree to this effect does not yet exist. KurdWatch suspects that the refugees are being expelled with the goal of confiscating the resulting empty homes. Many homes rented to Arab refugees belong to Kurds who have fled the country. Thus far the Kurdish Future Movement in Syria is the only party to protest the planned measures. Its spokesman Jiyan ʿUmar gave an interview to this effect to the Orient news station on October 7.
