Qamishli, Syria – The Assayish forces (security arm of the Democratic Union Party ‘PYD’) released eight young Arab men on Saturday from their detention center in the Kurdish-majority district of Aziziya in the city of al-Hasakah, in northeastern Syria, after arresting them on charges of involvement in “acts of sabotage” in the district.

The PYD-linked Assayish forces said in a statement that they released the eight detainees “to show goodwill” towards them and “spread the spirit of brotherhood” between the peoples of the region.

“We want to maintain stability and security in the city of al-Hasakah and its surroundings. Thus arresting these men was to protect Aziziya from sabotage acts, and their release emphasizes our goodwill, hoping they (the released young men) will not participate in any acts that threaten the civil peace in the city (Hasakah),” leadership of the Kurdish security forces of the Assayish said in a statement on Sunday.

The Assayish decision to release the arrested people was in coordination with the Consultative Council of al-Hasakah.

According to the Assayish’s statement, the released young men were Fadi Khalaf, Mohammed Saeed Khalif, Mohammed Mansour, Mansoor Ali Abdul Rahman, Mohammed Abdul Razak Saleh, Ahmed Ali al-Ubeid, Sami Yassin Munawar and Aladdin Khalif.
