Are Rojava Kurds collaborating with Assad? | World War 4 Report


Are Rojava Kurds collaborating with Assad? | World War 4 Report: The regime UN ambassador Bashar Jaafari said: "So the victory, achieved by the Syrian Kurds and the Syrian army in northern parts of Syria is a joint victory for all Syrians." These comments were of course avidly reported in the Turkish press. (Anadolu Agency, Yeni Safak, Feb. 17)

What has not been so widely reported is that the Kurds have denied these claims! Nesrin Abdullah of the YPG's Public Relations Office repudiated the regime's support: "Officials from the Syrian regime have begun claiming that YPG and YPJ [Women's Protection Units] have links with the Syrian army. They are attempting to distort the reality of our forces... [F]or their political interests, they intend to exploit our achievements... Through this statement I answer the claims Shaaban made. Up until now, the Syrian regime has not acknowledged the YPG. How are they now saying the YPG is part of the [Syrian army]?" (Rudaw, YPG Public Relations Office Facebook page, Feb. 21)
