ʿAfrin: YPG once again displays corpses

KurdWatch, April 30, 2016—On April 28, 2016, the People’s Defense Units (YPG) of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) displayed roughly fifty corpses in ʿAfrin. The dead were transported through the city in an open vehicle. According to the YPG, they were dead Islamists killed in a battle. According to the opposition media office in Tall Rifʿat, twenty kilometers east of ʿAfrin, the dead were residents of that city, as well as fighters for the Free Syrian Army (FSA). Around three months ago, the YPG-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces captured the location from the Syrian opposition [further information], which the latter now tried to re-capture. Already on October 16, 2014, there was a similar case of the YPG desecrating corpses. At that time, it was fighters from the Islamic State (IS) [further information] .
