4,000 Syrian Kurds flee Isis terror

Friday 19th September 2014

Thousands cross into Turkey as fighters seize villages

NEARLY 4,000 Syrian Kurds crossed into Turkey yesterday fleeing from Islamic State (Isis) fighters who seized 21 villages and besieged the Kurdish city of of Kobani.

The crowd of mostly women and children gathered behind a barbed wire barrier along the border opposite the Turkish village of Dikmetas, 12 miles from the city. More were arriving on foot from nearby villages, carrying possessions in sacks.

Turkish security forces did not allow them to cross the border until Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu gave permission.

“When our brothers from Syria and elsewhere arrive at our borders to escape death … without discrimination over religion or sect, we take them in and we will continue to take them in,” he claimed. Isis gains highlighted the plight of Syria’s Kurds, who have been some of the most successful against the Isis extremists. But, unlike US-backed Iraqi Kurds, they are still largely on their own in a devastated country.

The main Kurdish force in Syria, known as the People’s Protection Units or YPK, is viewed with suspicion by Syrian rebels and their Western supporters because of suspected links to President Bashar Assad’s government. Nato member Turkey is also wary of the group, which it claims is affiliated with the Kurdish PKK.

The US and its allies say the Kurdish alliance is fighting alongside the Assad government. And the US doesn’t want to upset Turkey. While the US and its allies accelerate weapons deliveries to Iraqi Kurds, Syrian Kurds have been largely dismissed and ignored.

The US military has conducted 176 airstrikes in Iraq since August 8. And France conducted its first airstrikes in Iraq yesterday.

… Syrian Kurds were unsurprisingly bitter about the lack of assistance. “There are double standards. They are looking for allies who serve them.

“They are not looking for real allies,” said Nasser Haj Mansour, an official at the defence office in Syria’s Kurdish region.

In the lead-up to this week’s UN General Assembly meetings, the Obama administration is engaged in an aggressive political campaign to justify and marshal support for the extension of its war in Iraq into Syria. Under the pretext of “degrading and destroying” Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militias, the US is engaged in an illegal war of aggression with the objective of ousting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad: here.

  29. GERMANY: The fourth Ivana Hoffman festival was held in Duisberg on Saturday in memory of the communist fighter who was killed in battle against Isis in northern Syria in 2015.

    Hundreds of people marched from the railway station to the festival grounds, where participants heard performances by Kurdish, African and German bands.

    Representatives from Die Linke addressed the crowds, as did Tuba Hezer, a former People’s Democratic party MP for the Turkish city of Van.

    Ms Hoffman was killed in combat at Til Temir on March 7 2015.
