Amuda or Amoudah(Arabic: عامودا 'Āmūdā, Kurdish: Amûdê) is a town in Al Hasakah Governorate in northeastern Syria. Amuda has a mostly Kurdish population with also a significant Assyrian presence. On November 13, 1960, the town was the site of a tragedy in which more than 200 children died in a fire at a movie theatre.
As of 20 July 2012, the area has come under the control of the Popular Protection Units (commonly known as YPG) in accordance with Assad intelligence. According to Fawzi Shangal, the leader of the Kurdish Accord Party in Syria, the city fell without any major clashes as the forces of the Syrian government withdrew from the area.
