Al-Qamishli: Progressive Party denies information from ANHA

KurdWatch, November 14, 2015—According to a November 4, 2015 report by the Hawar (ANHA) news agency, which has close ties to the Democratic Union Party (PYD), the chairman of the Kurdish Democratic Progressive Party in Syria, ʿAbdulhamid Hajji Darwish, recently traveled to Sulaymaniyah; while there he visited with representatives of the transitional administration appointed by PYD for the territories under its control. At the meeting, he reportedly stated that the PYD’s People’s Defense Units (YPG) exercise legitimate military force in »Rojava« (Syrian-Kurdistan), and his party is against any military group that does not align itself with the YPG. That same day, the Progressive Party denied this version of events. According to the Progressive Party, the only thing ʿAbdulhamid Hajji Darwish said in Sulaymaniyah was that in order for the YPG to truly represent the Kurdish people, the PYD must stop trying to rule the people alone.
