Al-Maʿbada: Young woman ignites explosive in front of PDK-S party office

KurdWatch, August 16, 2016—On July 31, 2016, a masked young woman attached and ignited an explosive device to the main entrance of the office of the Kurdistan Democratic Party – Syria (PDK‑S) in al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê). Directly after she left the location the device exploded and destroyed the entrance area as well as part of the interior. The local committee of the PDK‑S published a video of the attack taken from a surveillance camera. A PDK‑S member from al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê) told KurdWatch that he blamed the Revolutionary Youth of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) for the attack. He said: »We anticipate no further clarification from the Asayiş [the PYD’s security service], even though we have video footage of the perpetrator.«
