Security forces have fired upon demonstrators in Qamişlo this evening as they held a candlelight march.
The incident occurred after the march ended in a park when security tried to arrest two of the demonstrators. Several other demonstrators tried to stop the arrests and security opened fire. There were, however, no reports of injuries or deaths.
Akram Darwish, a local photographer, was arrested and his camera and equipment were confiscated.
The march was held in response to a call by local Kurdish youth groups to show solidarity with the besieged city of Dera’a.
