ʿAmudah: PYD release member of PDK‑S local committee

KurdWatch, July 31, 2016—On JUly 13, 2016, the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), released Idris Yunus Haj Qasim (b. 1970, married, five children). The member of ʿAmudah's local committee of the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Syria (PDK‑S) was abducted by the Asayiş on June 14 [further information]. Qasim told KurdWatch that no regular interrogations took place instead there were »political discussions«. During the discussions he was accused of smuggling potential recruits into Iraqi-Kurdistan. His confinement was particularly difficult since he was apparently detained for the eight days with fighters for the Islamic State (IS).
