Cyprus-based Kurdish group issues plea for medicines

The Kurdish Party of Democratic Union (PYD) yesterday issued a plea for aid in the form of medicine for refugees in the Kobane Canton in Western Kurdistan/Northern Syria.

Salah Eddin Ali, PYD representative in Cyprus, said the region has had a large inflow of refugees from Syria and neighbouring countries and lacked the resources to provide proper aid due to embargos and border issues.

It is estimated that 50,000-60,000 refugees have fled to the region to escape radical Islamist groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and Jabhat al-Nusra who have been launching attacks.

The Kurdish state is doing its best to provide for the refugees, but they are in dire need of aid, he said. To help please Tel: 25 106 821.
