Qamishli, Syria – The Assayish forces (security arm of the Democratic Union Party “PYD”) launched a campaign of arrests in the central market of the city of Qamishli (Qamishlo), in northeastern Syria, locals activists reported.
Speaking to ARA News in Qamishli, the civil rights activist Massoud Shukri said that the PYD-linked Assayish arrested dozens of young men during the last two days, amid a state of alert in the city.
“The Assayish forces are looking for suspects who have links with the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) and other terrorist groups known for their hostility towards Rojava (areas with Kurdish majority in Syria),” Shukri said.
Local sources reported that the Assayish were mobilized in the city after receiving information about the presence of people suspected to have links with terrorist groups.
Earlier this week, the Assayish forces announced the arrest of a group of people at the Syrian-Turkish border, who were interrogated and accused of having links with the IS radicals in Qamishli.
