Al-Qamishli: Syrian regime recruits for the army

KurdWatch, December 13, 2015—On December 3, 4 and 7, 2015, employees of the Syrian regime's military police recruited young men for the Syrian army in the city center of al‑Qamishli. The city center is under the control of the regime and the Democratic Union Party (PYD). The exact number of people recruited is not known. It is also unclear whether Arabs as well as Kurds were recruited. Since the start of forcible recruitment by the People’s Defense Units (YPG) of the PYD in mid-2014, in the mainly Kurdish regions the regime has conscripted hardly any Kurds into the army. It is a different story in mixed cities such as al‑Hasakah.
