SYRIA- Meshal Tammo, the spokesman for the Kurdish
Future Movement, a political grouping in northeastern Syria, was killed on
Friday evening at his home in Qamishli at al-Hasakh, northeastern Syria.

DP-News that an armed group had attacked his residence home in the city and
shot him dead before his corps was moved to Faraman private Hospital in
They also added that his son Marcel was put at
emergency room and is suffering from fatal injuries as he was accompanied his father
Meshal the time gunfire took place.
Reports said that this is the second attempt to
kill the Syrian Kurdish activist Meshal Tammo.
Another female activists Zahidh Reshkilo was
also injured and moved to hospital at the same attack which targeted Tammo
Meshal Tammo said earlier "Syrian Kurds
are not looking to separate from Syria—though of course the idea of a Kurdistan
is a dream,"
No official statement regarding this incident
have been published yet; while as activists blame Syrian authorities for it.
Reports added that Kurdish activists and
analysts say that in the past three weeks, members of the 11 unofficial Kurdish
political parties have met with Kurdish activists from the Local Coordination
Committee, an alliance for young protest organizers, plan to name a special
committee and hold a conference in Syria within the next few weeks.
Such a Kurdish group would be unrelated to the
recently formed Syrian National Council, the country's largest opposition
umbrella. While Kurds say they share the opposition's overall goal of a
democratic Syria, many Kurds have also expressed frustration at what they see
as protesters' Arab agenda, and also say they aspire to greater autonomy within
