Al-Qamishli: Mishʿal at-Tammu accuses Syrian government of assassination attempt

KURDWATCH, September 12, 2011—According to his own account, Mishʿal at-Tammu (b. 1957), speaker of the Kurdish Future Movement in Syria, narrowly escaped an attempt on his life on September 8, 2011. In a telephone conversation with KurdWatch, at-Tammu explained that he, his son, and another party member were on their way to a Future Movement meeting in al-Qamishli at around 4:00 pm, when two men on a motorcycle tried to stop his car. Another car with tinted windows was following behind them. They were able to leave the motorcycle behind, but the other car passed and then stopped them. An armed man exited the vehicle, but immediately stumbled, which allowed at-Tammu and his companions to escape their pursuers. Mishʿal at-Tammu told KurdWatch that he holds the Syrian government responsible for the assassination attempt.
