Syrian Kurdish PYD security arrests members of Kurdish Democratic Party of Syria
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - The Kurdish Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) Asayesh security forces in Syria arrested several members of the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Syria (PDKS) in Afrin, Rojava on Sunday.

The PDKS said in a statement that “PYD security forces from this morning till noon have gone house-to-house in Afrin’s sub-district of Rajo, demanding that youth in the town join the YPG,” the PYD’s military wing.

In addition, the Asayesh arrested several members of the Kurdish National Council (KNC-ENKS) in Afrin.

Sources said they have released some of the people arrested Sunday.

In the Basla village in the Sherawa sub-district of Afrin, the PYD conducted searches and seized homes. They arrested several members of the PDKS, including Khabat Hussein, Esmael Maamo, Mustafa Kurba, Azad Bri. Only two of them have been freed.

The PDKS warned that the arrests “will not serve the national interest of the Kurdish people.”  It asked the international organizations and other parties to put pressure on the PYD to release its members.

On August 15, the Rojava Asayesh in the Grekelake sub-district of Qamishli in Rojava, northern Syria, arrested two politburo and three executive leadership members, plus 13 other members of  the PDKS

Earlier this month the Rojava Asayesh arrested Ibrahim Biro, head of the KNC-ENKS in Qamishli, and Hassan Salih, deputy head of the Kurdish Union Party in Syria (PYKS).

Rudaw never gives the Asayish's side of the story, local security sources say they detained KDPS members for holding unlawful meetings with Turkish backed forces near Azaz. They're being questioned and released. Rudaw should be reporting on the fact that the ENKS is the only Kurdish party in Rojava to not condemn Turkish airstrikes on civilians south of Jarablus.

PYD/YPG/PKK are Stalinist groups, by their nature they do not allow any other groups to be represented. A state founded by them would be a terror campaign against the Syrian Kurds and Kurds in the region. We need Barzani not Apoist criminals to lead the Kurds.

This is the last thing we need right now. Unfortunately PYD keep proving that they too can be quite arrogant and authoritarian. They're facing one of their biggist threats yet and they choose to cause tension with other parties instead of doing the opposite and fixing relations. All your doing is prove you don't deserve to rule Rojava
