ERBIL — The Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), which rules Rojava, the Syrian Kurdish region, abducted last night four members of the Syrian Kurdish National Council (ENKS) in Qamishlo.
Shifa Ahmed Khiro, a member of ENKS, told BasNews that armed men affiliated to PYD, an offshoot of Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), abducted four ENKS members, including two women in their houses in Qamishlo city in Rojava. Their destiny is yet unclear, she said.
Moreover, the PKK-affiliated forces raided on Tuesday the ENKS headquarter in Qamishlo, arresting 13 members of the party and closing down the office, Germany-based Democracy Center for the Human Rights in Kurdistan reported.
ENKS is set to release a report on PKK's human rights violations against the opposition political parties in a press conference on Wednesday in Erbil, aiming at enlightening the public and UN organizations about those human rights abuses.
Khalid Ali, ENKS representative in Kurdistan Region, told BasNews "They will publicize, in a press conference on Wednesday at 5:00 pm local time, the entire violations of PKK in Rojava."
The official added "the PKK policy has created a mayhem in Rojava."
PKK's offshoot in Rojava has so far detained a large number of political activists with closing down all the headquarters of the opposition parties as part of its crackdown measure against opposition parties whose political views are different from those of PKK.
