The Kurdish National Council, a Syrian Coalition’s block, condemns the terrorist acts practiced by the Democratic Union Party (PYD) against whoever disagrees with its policies. These acts include kidnapping, arrest and forced recruitment. The Kurdish National Council also condemns the PYDs’ bullying of other Kurdish political blocs in Syria.
On Thursday, four PYD gunmen broke into the house of Hassan Ramadan, member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party’s central committee and arrested him. The PYD’s police force, known as the Asayish forces, arrested citizen Saad Ibrahim Yassin and his son Ibrahim on Wednesday and tortured them under the pretext of wearing the Peshmerga uniform.
A Kurdish National Council statement stresses that these unilateral practices have caused and continue to cause more people to leave their homes in fear.
It calls on the PYD to desist from such abusive practices against other Kurds and their nationalist cause in Syria, demanding the immediate release of Hassan Ramadan and Saad Ibrahim Yassin and his son Ibrahim and all prisoners of conscience in its. It also calls for stopping all arrest campaigns and forced recruitment against young Kurds. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
