Syrian journalists work for Kurdish outlet abducted


DAMASCUS: The YPG/PKK terror group has kidnapped two journalists working for a media outlet with links to a rival Kurdish group in Syria.

YPG/PKK terrorists raided the houses of Sabri Fahri and Baver Molla Ahmet in Qamishli city in north eastern Syria overnight, local sources said with the condition of anonymity. 

The journalists were reportedly taken to an unknown location by the terrorists.

According to the sources, the order to hold the two journalists was issued by Mahmut Ris, a member in the PKK terror group in Qandil Mountains in northern Iraq.

The two journalists work for ARK News outlet based in Erbil in northern Iraq, which has links to the Kurdish National Council, an adversary Syrian Kurdish political party.

On Saturday, the PKK terrorist group banned the Kurdish Rudaw TV in areas under its control in north eastern Syria.

During its over 35-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK has been responsible for the deaths of at least 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.

The terror group is listed as a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the US, and EU.

Meanwhile, Turkish forces “neutralised” eight YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria, the National Defence Ministry said on Sunday.

The terrorists were targeted while preparing to carry out attacks in the Operations Peace Spring and Euphrates Shield zones, the ministry said on Twitter.

Turkish authorities use the term “neutralise” to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
