Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) forces have expelled families from 
their houses in Hassakeh’s countryside, including the family of a Free 
Syrian Army commander who was killed by ISIS in an ongoing operation to 
evict and occupy the land of Syrian opposition members and their families.

A local source reported to Zaman al-Wasl that PYD fighters, led by 
Hussein Kojar, informed families of Free Syrian Army (FSA) members to 
leave the city of Ras-al-Ain, controlled by the PYD since the beginning 
of 2013. Kurdish forces have purportedly also prevented families from 
taking their belongings and vehicles.

The source mentioned that among those forcefully displaced was the 
family of Ammar al-Sayad, an FSA commander and one of its prominent 
founders in the eastern region, who were forced to leave their home and 
leave the city. According to the source, PYD fighters have also seized 
all shops in the Western entrance of the city.
