Al-Maʿbada: Asayiş use water cannon against demonstrators

KurdWatch, December 23, 2015—On December 17, 2015, the Kurdish National Council organized a demonstration in al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê) to mark »Kurdish Flag Day«. Approximately one thousand people took part in the event. Employees of the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), tried unsuccessfully to disperse the demonstration using water cannons. Following the demonstration, they abducted several of the organizers of the event, including Khalil Ose, chairperson of the regional committee of the Kurdish National Council in al‑Maʿbada. President Masʿud Barzani condemned the attack in a letter to the Kurdish National Council.
