Women from Serrin accuse YPG of arresting their men and inspecting their houses daily

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights received a copy of a video showing hundreds of children, men and women, sources said that they are located in the town of Serrin at the southern countryside of Ayn al-Arab (Kobani) in the northeastern countryside of Aleppo, and they are at the streets of the town, where several women and men spoke in the video that YPG which seized the strategic town in the 27th of July 2015 had opened fire in the air to scare them, and that they carried out several raids in the town and they also got them out to the outskirts of the town, and they are suffering difficult and inhumane conditions from a lack of food, medicine and water, and that there are 400 men arrested by YPG while taking control of the town, while the video showed citizens shouting slogans “Death and not humiliation, O God we have no one else you O God”, YPG took control of the city, after clashes continued for about 3 weeks against  the “Islamic state” which had previously controlled the city.
it’s worth mentioning that activists and people in Serrin area accused YPG and its allied rebel factions of arresting about 150 men and young men from the town of Serrin and accused them also of keeping their families which most of them are women and children under “house arrest”, while Kurdish leadership sources informed the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that the young men were detained under investigation for what YPG had picked up via wireless devices commands given by the “Islamic State” to a group of 12 members to engage within the civilians and stay in the town, the leadership sources confirmed that they have not arrested them arbitrarily or on ethnicity basis.
