ʿAmudah: After forty-five days the PYD release the father of a recruited minor

KurdWatch, July 16, 2016—On July 9, 2016, the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), released Majdal Qasim. The Asayiş abducted Qasim on May 26 after he turned to the media to demand the release of his 16‑year‑old son Zinar. Zinar was kidnapped from his father’s house on May 23 and recruited for the PYD’s People’s Defense Units (YPG) [further information]. Majdal Qasim is a member of the Kurdish Union Party in Syria (Yekîtî), a party critical of the PYD.
