It's being quite a while I am studying Kurds, who wants to have an independent state. They share border with Iran, Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Armenia. YPG millitants of Kurds and America are supporting independent movement of kurds but on the other hand Turkey and Daesh are fighting against this movement. I had in my knowledge, Iran and Syria were against kurd movement beacuse they consider kurdistan as new Isreal in Middel East, but in Pakistan media and social pages potraying Iran and Syria are supporting the movement of kurds, real hero is Tayyip Urdogan and army of Turkey who is standing against oppression. Can you guys please elaborate what is going on in kurdistan, who is supporting whom and what are their motives?
https://ahvalnews.com/sdf/pentagon-allocates-550-million-sdf The Pentagon has announced that it will allocate $550 million of its 2019 budget to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a group that Turkey views as linked to a terrorist entity, the Turkish state-rune Anadolu Agency reported on Monday. The budget will include $300 million to train and equip the SDF, and a further $250 million for a contentious “border force” that is being set up to guard the regional borders. The United States sees the SDF as a multi-ethnic force that is an indispensable ally in the coalition against the extremist jihadist Islamic State (ISIS). However, the force is organically linked to the predominantly-Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), a group seen by Turkey as the Syrian wing of the banned Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). The Turkish armed forces have been involved in decades of armed conflict with the PKK, which is designated as a terrorist organisation by both Turkey and the United States. Turkey is currently fighting the YPG in the northwest Syrian area of Afrin, in an operation that has sparked high tensions between the country and its NATO ally the United States, after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan threatened to extend the operation to nearby Manbij, where U.S. troops are stationed.
Armenians, Kurds to protest Erdoğan visit to Germany October 30, 2012 - 15:36 AMT PanARMENIAN.Net - A large group of Kurds, Ezidis, Armenians, Alawites and Syriacs from Europe are planning to hold a protest against Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s visit to Germany, Hurriyet Daily News reported. Around 10,000 people from almost 50 organizations are expected to attend the rally in Berlin. Ezidis in particular are angry with Erdoğan’s recent remarks in which he used the term “Yezidi” instead of “Ezidi.” They believe that the word “Yezidi” holds negative connotation in Turkey. Aziz Alkış, head of the Ezidi Associations Federation in Berlin said the “Prime Minister looked down on Ezidi citizens” with his remarks. He said they would call on Erdoğan to end his policy in Syria, as well as end pressure on minorities and ethnic groups in Turkey. Noting that the Ezidi religion is not recognized on national ID cards and signified by an “X,” Alkış said it made their faith seem anti-Islamic. Azad Ordughanyan, head of the Germany Armenians Center, said they would call on Turkey to recognize the Armenian Genocide. “Turkey is still denying the genocide. We will renew our call for its recognition.” The head of the Alawite Unions Federation in Cologne, Hüseyin Mat, said the Turkish government pursues a policy of assimilation rather than accepting all differences. “Erdoğan will tell Europe that Turkey is a democratic country here. We will tell that this is not true.”
Iraqi Kurdistan said on Monday it has granted refugee status to 30 Kurdish Syrian troops who defected to the region in the first such instance in the revolt against Bashar al-Assad's regime. The autonomous Kurdistan region in north Iraq pledged it would not hand over the soldiers to Damascus after they crossed over in the past two days. "We received them for humanitarian reasons, and they are under our protection and we gave them refugee status," said Anwar Haji Othman, Kurdish deputy minister for the local peshmerga security forces. "We will not hand them over to the Syrian government because they are Kurdish and it is our right to protect them," he said. Othman said they crossed at the common border point between Dohuk province in Iraqi Kurdistan and Syria, having run "away from the Syrian army." According to an official overseeing two camps of Kurdish Syrian refugees in Dohuk, 15 families and 130 civilian men, all Kurds, have arrived in the autonomous region from Syria in recent days. "Those Syrian families were distributed between the two camps where 1,800 Kurdish Syrians are living," said Barzan Burhum Murad. Iraq has shied away from imposing punitive measures against Syria as Assad's regime carries out a bloody crackdown on an uprising against his rule in which rights groups say 7,600 people have died. While there are still regular civilian protests in Syria, the focus has shifted to armed conflict with regime forces. Assad is a member of the minority Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam, while the majority of Syrians, and of his opponents, are Sunni Muslims. Iraq, by contrast, is governed by majority Shiite Muslims, but has a substantial Sunni Arab minority. Baghdad said on Friday it would not invite the Syrian government or opposition to an Arab summit to be held in the Iraqi capital in late March, after an Arab League request that Damascus not attend. Arab League member states voted in November to suspend Syria's participation in the Arab League because of the violence. http://news.yahoo.com/dozens-syrian-soldiers-defect-iraqi-kurdistan-133542884.html
