Kidnapping, torture and forcible recruitment Terrifying testimonies of PYD terrorism against Syrian children The cases of kidnapping and recruitment of children increased sharply after the terrorist PKK/PYD occupied large areas of northeastern Syria, according to what was documented by several human rights centers and organizations.  A white van stops in the middle of the road between the house of Sama Kiddo (16 years old) and the private institute in which she studies. The door is opened and one of her friends asks her to go up to take her home, but the destination was not the house, but rather the headquarters of an organization specialized in detaining children. It is affiliated with the so-called "Revolutionary Youth" (Guanan Shore Shukr) movement of the PKK terrorist organization.  The occurrence of this incident was only a few meters away from the headquarters of an international organization working in northeastern Syria, concerned with issues of civil peace and child care during wars. However, this organization and other organizations failed to carry out their tasks regarding the protection of children and combating violations committed against them by the PKK/ The terrorist PYD, despite the fact that the terrorist organization pledged before the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict Virginia Gamba, to prevent the recruitment of children under the age of eighteen.  It is noteworthy that the cases of kidnapping and recruitment of children increased sharply after the terrorist PKK/PYD occupied large areas of northeastern Syria , according to what was documented by several human rights centers and organizations.  Fathi Kado, the girl's father, Sama, said during his interview with TRT Arabic, that his daughter "was going to a private institute to receive systematic reinforcement lessons, and in this institute some students secretly affiliated with the so-called "revolutionary youth" lured her, and they were able to influence her by joining the organization, then They kidnapped her on the way home, and had it not been for the success of the process of mobilizing public opinion through the media, tribal sheikhs and some human rights centers for 25 consecutive days, the organization would not have reorganized Sama, and her fate would have remained unknown, like hundreds of forcibly recruited children.  Recruitment start  Members of the "Revolutionary Youth" are secretly scattered in all places that children can go to, from schools, institutes, forums, electronic game stores and clubs.  For them, Sama was a precious catch, given her young age and belonging to a large family with a history related to standing against the Assad regime and a large extension in the region, so one of her friends at the institute started throwing her nets and persuading her to join a club for culture and music, and that this club through which one can learn about culture and folk arts, and that she can participate in his activities, and she can go to the club and return to her home daily.  The little girl, Sama, liked the idea without knowing that she had fallen into the trap of the PKK/PYD terrorist organization's forced recruitment of children.  towards the unknown  The car veered through a side road and then to the road that leads outside the city of Hasaka, so Sama her friend asked about their destination, as this is not the way to her home, and the answer was that their destination was a house that belongs to the organization.  Less than an hour later, Sama was in a house that she says was full of pictures of the leader of the PKK organization and pictures of fighters in military uniforms. Two girls were with her in the house, and the two girls' talk focused on convincing her that they were "struggling to protect the land and honor of the Kurds."  Sama says that she realized the extent of the predicament she was in since she entered the house and saw the pictures of the fighters, and what made her more certain was the two girls talking to her.  temptation and intimidation  Sama's father told TRT Arabic: "My daughter's crying and begging for five days did not help in persuading them to take her home."   The two girls belonging to the terrorist organization PKK/PYD were trying to persuade Sama by various means to respond to them and stop asking to return home, and when she refused, they began to use violence against her, such as reprimand, river and reprimand.  The most difficult thing for Sama, as she describes, was when they forced her to wear a military uniform and took her to a weapons training center near the al-Qahtaniyah area, thinking that she might change her stance and stop demanding her return home.  pressure paid off  About 25 days later, the same car in which the girl Sama was kidnapped was taking her to the village of "Ali Faro" in the countryside of Qamishli, in order to hand her over to her family.  Kado says that until now he does not know exactly what path he took until the organization decided to return his daughter. Is it the medical reports that prove that she suffers from health and psychological problems, or the movement of public opinion, or the mediation of the sheikhs of the region, headed by the sheikh of the Shammar clan Hamidi Daham al-Jarba with the terrorist PYD? Or, did all of these methods combined put pressure on the organization, so he decided to leave his child alone?  Members of the terrorist organization requested that the girl’s father and mother be in the village to receive the girl, but her father insisted on refusing for fear of being pressured into silence about what happened, so he sent the girl’s mother, brother and uncle to receive her.  Sama was rescued from the clutches of the organization, and escaped the unknown fate that awaited her, but her father confirms that she saw dozens of orphaned and poor children and the sons and daughters of the dead PKK/PYD militias being beaten and tortured in the camps to force them to carry out what was asked of them, and on top of those demands the use of weapons.  Seven lean years  The family of the child M.K., who comes from a village in the countryside of Aleppo, was unable to save their son, who was forcibly recruited by the PKK/PYD militias at the age of 14, and he did not meet the same fate as Sama, so he fled and returned to his family’s place of residence, only to be surprised the next day that he became Accused of a case of terrorism and belonging to a terrorist cell affiliated with the Syrian regime, he was arrested and sentenced to seven years in prison.   The child's mother said, during her conversation with TRT Arabic, that she saw burns and torture marks on her son's body on his first visit, which was allowed by the organization, and his health was deteriorating as a result of the physical torture he was subjected to.  Rasha Al-Ahdab, a lawyer active in the field of human rights in the United States of America, who follows up on the case of the child, told TRT Arabic, that he was born in 2004, was arrested in July 2018 at the age of 14, and then forcibly recruited.  She adds that a group of journalists and human rights defenders "prepared detailed reports proving the arrest and trial of the child on charges of terrorism without securing a defense lawyer, as the child was a minor at the time and was subjected to torture and intimidation with cigarette burns, beatings, and placing him in solitary confinement with daily torture and forcing him to sign under duress."  She added: "The child's parents did not know anything about him until six months later, after the prison officials denied his existence, and we highlighted evidence proving the child's presence in prison, which was presented to the joint head of the External Relations Department of the Autonomous Administration, Abdul Karim Omar, who informed us that the child was involved in terrorist operations and was sentenced Seven years in prison.  With the flag of the International Alliance  As of the end of 2021, the Syrian Network for Human Rights documented at least 156 children still being recruited by the PKK/PYD militias, out of 537 cases of child recruitment since its establishment, and 19 cases of kidnapping and recruitment in December of the same year.

Mount Qandil to train them, with the knowledge of the international coalition inside Syria.”   He adds that they have "committees and journalists interested in this matter, and a number of organizations document kidnappings and send them to the United Nations Organization concerned with children's rights, and they are in contact with them regarding violations against children in northeastern Syria."  He points out that "the dangers of recruiting children are summed up in the process of brainwashing them in a short period, then filling them with the ideology of the PKK (terrorist) party, and then assigning them to carry out kidnappings and terrorism, and this is what prompted people to sell their property and emigrate out of fear for the future of their children."  He believes that "the continued kidnappings undermine security and stability in the region, and thus push people to migrate and sell their properties at the cheapest prices." He asserts that "the international coalition forms a political and military cover for the PYD (terrorist) organization, and therefore they naturally bear moral responsibility for the kidnapping and terrorism of our children."  A spokesman for the Kurdish Future Movement in Syria revealed to TRT Arabic that they had informed the international coalition of these violations, but "so far the coalition has been silent, and this leaves many question marks," as he put it.

Forcibly and through kidnapping.  He added: "We are here from a legal point of view in front of a complex crime, firstly, it is an attack and a violation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and secondly, it is an attack on international humanitarian law, which, in times of war, amounts to a war crime committed by these parties, and thirdly, it is an act of kidnapping that falls within the framework of enforced disappearance, This is also a crime in itself, in the sense that from a legal point of view it is a compound that has several legal dimensions.”  Mustafa asserts that "this crime has significant humanitarian implications and repercussions, such as depriving the child of education and basic rights."
