ʿAmudah: A sixteen-year-old probably recruited to the YPG

KurdWatch, May 30, 2016—On May 23, 2016, the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), kidnapped the sixteen‑year‑old Zinar Majdal Qasim from his parents’ house in the village of Karanku, just a few kilometers southwest of ʿAmudah. No reason was given for the boy’s abduction. His relatives suspect that he was recruited to the PYD’s People’s Defense Units (YPG), since on that same day numerous young men were forcibly recruited from villages in the ʿAmudah area, including Karanku, Gir Ziro, Gir Ziyarat, Tabaqa, Jawhara und Tall Habash.
