Ghuwayran Neighborhood Caught between Fires of Government and Kurd Self-Management Forces

Ghuwayran Neighborhood

I- Introduction:
Ghuwayran neighborhood is located in the south-east of Al Hassaka City and its population is estimated to be more than 80 thousand individuals, most of them are from Al Bakara and Jabour tribes.
Armed opposition groups and An-Nusra Front gained control over the neighborhood in the mid of 2012 (most of them were from the neighborhoods’ residents). We were not able to reach the neighborhood due to serious security risks, however, we interviewed some of the displaced residents who fled the neighborhood and went to Turkey. We were able to record the detainees and victims’ names, in addition to other important details like locations, time and pictures.
