Al-Hasakah - SMART

On Monday, an unidentified group kidnapped a member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in the town of al-Malikya, 145 kilometers northeast of al-Hasakah, Northeastern Syria. The kidnappers brought the KDP member to a unknown location.

Activists reported that unknown gunmen driving a black jeep kidnapped the engineer Dhahem Mohammad Othman, a member of the secretariat of the Kurdistan Democratic Union of Students and Young People of the KDP. Othman was kidnapped at about 11pm on the main road in the village of Kalhi in al-Hasakah.

The union member Shvan Ibrahim reported that armed parties accused of belonging to the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) kidnapped the engineer Dhahem Mohammad Othman "violently without taking into account his age or years of political and partisan work." Ibrahim noted that there is no legal grounding for Othman's arrest, therefore calling it a kidnapping.

Ibrahim added that the regular "arrests" by the YPG have led to increased congestion in the streets. According to Ibrahim's description, the region lives in "fear of a Kurdish coup," and that the Kurdish Autonomous Administration (Rojava) continues to increase its arrests and kidnappings of civilians in the region.

In June, the Rojava's al-Asayish security forces arbitrarily arrested Akram Khalaf, a member of the secretariat of the Kurdistan Democratic Students and Youth Union of the KDP in al-Qamishli city.

Rojava  has imposed restrictions on political actions, according to the Kurdish National Council, which periodically organizes sit-ins and demonstrations to demand the release of the council's detainees in Rojava prisons, and to denounce the Rojava's harassment and abuse against the council's headquarters and members in al-Hasakah.
