PYD, the Syrian offshoot of the PKK terrorist organization, on Sunday released the head of Syria's Kurdish National Council (ENKS), Ibrahim Biro, who was abducted on Saturday in the northeastern al-Hasakah province, a Kurdish official has said.
"Ibrahim Biro, who was abducted by PYD forces, was brought to a place close to Iraqi border with Syria and released overnight," Nuri Birimo, a senior member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Syria (KDP-S) told Anadolu Agency.
He said Biro had walked to a Kurdish peshmerga position and was later secured by peshmerga forces.
The Kurdish member said that Biro's health was well.
Biro and a member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Syria (PDKS) Suleyman Oso were kidnapped by the PYD in Al-Qamishli city in Syria's Al-Hasakah Governorate following a conference they attended together.
Turkey considers PYD and its armed branch YPG as the Syrian offshoot of PKK terror organization.
ENKS is a coalition of 12 Syrian Kurdish parties and known to have developed an opposition stance against PYD as the group became more dominant in northern Syria over time.
