Al-Qamishli: YPG storms Yekîtî military drill ground

KURDWATCH, January 20, 2013—On January 11, 2013, armed members of the Democratic Union Party's (PYD) People's Defense Units (YPG) stormed the military drill ground »Newroz« near ʿAli Faru (ten kilometers west of al‑Qamishli) with vehicles. The drill ground, which belongs to the Kurdish Union Party in Syria (Yekîtî), was opened in early January. All Kurdish flags and Syrian independence flags were removed. A member of the Yekîtî told KurdWatch: »The drill ground was deserted. The YPG justified its actions to eyewitnesses by explaining that the flags would give the regime a pretense for air attacks.« In a statement, the Yekîtî condemned the actions of the YPG.
