Al-Qamishli: Mass panic in city center

KurdWatch, May 14, 2016—On May 7, 2016, mass panic broke out in the city center of al‑Qamishli. Hundreds of civilians tried to leave the center and many shop owners closed their stores. The reasons were an explosion and an exchange of shots in the city of Nusaybin, Turkey, close to the Syrian border. People first thought these events were happening in the city center of al‑Qamishli and panicked. On April 20, a number of people were killed as a result of the skirmishes between the People’s Defense Units (YPG) of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and the National Defense Army, which is loyal to the regime [further information].
