PYD Releases 16 Women After 9 Days in Detention

Activist confirms Kurdish forces free group of women after they were arbitrarily arrested in Syria's northern Hassakeh province for nine days

The Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) on Sunday released 16 women from Deir-ez-Zor after they were detained for nine days in the party’s prisons in Hassakeh’s western countryside.

Ahmad al-Ramadan, head of the Deir-ez-Zor is Being Slaughtered Silently campaign, confirmed to Zaman al-Wasl that the women were arbitrarily arrested by the PYD who only released them on Sunday night.

He added that six of the women were from Deir-ez-Zor’s eastern countryside and had cut through Mount Abdulaziz traveling towards Ras al-Ayn in Hassakeh’s countryside – a common route for people escaping ISIS-controlled areas of Deir-ez-Zor.
