Suluk: Many demonstrators injured and abducted

KurdWatch, June 8, 2016—On June 3, 2016, several hundred residents of the city of Suluk, located twenty kilometers east of Tall Abyad, demonstrated against the policies of the Democratic Union Party (PYD). They demanded that the PYD allow all residents of the city to return. During the PYD seizure of the predominantly Arab region around Tall Abyad in the summer of 2015, many Arab residents were displaced [download report]. Members of the Asayiş, the PYD’s security service, shot in the air to break up the demonstration. In doing so, many of the demonstrators were injured. Moreover, the Asayiş abducted several demonstrators. The exact number of those injured and abducted is not known.
