PKK recruits another child in Syrian Kurdistan

An organization, affiliated with the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK), has reportedly abducted another child in Syrian Kurdistan, a local source said on Sunday.

The 16-year-old girl was reportedly kidnapped by the organization of Jwanen Shorishger, also known as the Revolutionary Youth, in Derik area, Syrian Kurdistan, as the PKK-affiliated continues to recruit teenagers and prepare them for armed conflicts.

A local source familiar with the developments identified the child as Sadra Ahmed, 16, from Fatuma village, in Derik, adding that she has been taken to a PKK military base.

This comes despite the fact that the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has an agreement with the United Nations to prevent child recruitment in northeast of Syria.

The PKK-affiliated organization has kidnapped scores of children in Syria since the beginning of 2021, the majority of whom have reportedly been sent to the military bases Qandil and Sinjar.


Geneva Call; will you follow up on these children?
