The Cizire Canton is now able to put the properties at the service of its administration.

Due to the security reasons, thousands of Syrian Kurds have escaped to the Kurdistan Region of Iraq or migrated to other countries and left all the properties and belongings.

PYD to confiscate abandoned property in Al-Hasakah
The semi-autonomous Kurdish Democratic Party (PYD) government in Al-Hasakah province issued a decree on Tuesday authorizing the confiscation of property belonging to residents who have left the province.
“The confiscated property will not be returned, unless the self-administration issues a specific decision stipulating it,” Jad al-Hasakawi, an Arab member of the Youth Union of Al-Hasakah, told Syria Direct on Wednesday.
“I don’t think this is likely” added al-Hasakawi, noting that the decision will have a wide impact, as he estimated that “30 percent” of Al-Hasakah has left the province because of fighting with the Islamic State.
The PYD will use the confiscated property to house fighters with its armed wing, the YPG, said al-Hasakawi.
A Hasakah journalist defended the decree, saying the PYD is looking after the community.
The decision aims to “protect the possessions of residents who have left from vandalism and theft, and to repurpose them in service of the community,” Zara Masto, the president of the Kurdish Walati News Network, told Syria Direct on Wednesday.
Misto said she is is confident that all property will be returned in the case of a resident’s return."
