KurdWatch, August 18, 2016—On August 12, 2016, unknown persons broke into the office of the Kurdish National Council in Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê). They tore down the Kurdish flags and hoisted the flags of the Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) People’s Defense Units (YPG) and the PYD‑affiliated Revolutionary Youth Movement. According to one explanation by the Kurdish National Council, employees of the Asayiş, the PYD’s security service, were present but did not intervene.
