Tall Abyad: Arab tribes issue an ultimatum to the YPG

KurdWatch, December 18, 2015—On December 5, 2015, the assembly of tribes from ar‑Raqqah organized a demonstration in Suluk, with approximately three hundred male participants, against the Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) policies. In a statement, those gathered requested that the PYD’s People's Defense Units (YPG) stay out of their territories as well as hand over those »criminals who are responsible for the assaults [no further explanation]« within fourty-eight hours. It further stated that the »sons of the [Arabic] tribes in ar-Raqqah will no longer watch the systematic expulsion from Suluk and Tall Abyad«.

The YPG captured the city of Tall Abyad and its surroundings in June 2015 [further information], and since then the YPG has been accused of violating human rights, among others by Amnesty International.

Tall Abyad: FSA fighter fatally shot at a YPG checkpoint

KurdWatch, December 20, 2015—On December 14, 2015, Mustafa al‑Habbal, a fighter for the Thuwwar ar‑Raqqah brigades of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), was fatally shot at a checkpoint close to the village of ʿAntar, around ten kilometers south of Tall Abyad. Two other fighters were injured. The perpetrators are supposedly two fighters for the People’s Defense Unit (YPG) of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) who drove by the checkpoint on a motorbike and shot at the guard post. Subsequently, the assembly of tribes from ar‑Raqqah published a statement on December 15, 2015 in which it demanded that the perpetrators surrender within fourty‑eight hours. Furthermore, the assembly called again on the YPG to leave the area [further information]. The assembly accuses the YPG of systematically expelling Arab residents from the villages around Suluk and Tall Abyad and requested that it hand over the administration of Tall Abyad to its residents. According to the assembly, Tall Abyad is presently not controlled by Syrians but by Kurds originally from Turkey, Iraq or Iran. The statement called for a comprehensive investigation of YPG human rights violations by international actors such as Amnesty International and the United Nations. The assembly also announced that the tribes from ar‑Raqqah would not just stand by and watch the displacement policies of the YPG.
