The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE -

Sev­eral armed mil­i­tary forces from the Free Syr­ian Army (FSA) con­trolled the Hal­abAfrin road, aim­ing to ar­rest the Kurds pass­ing by the road. The FSA kid­napped over 700 Kurds. They seized all the prop­er­ties and cars of the Kurds and trans­ferred them to un­known lo­ca­tions.

Con­cern­ing this is­sue, Nuri Brimo, In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer at the Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party in Syria (KDP), told the Globe what is cur­rently hap­pen­ing is the be­gin­ning of invasion process started in Afrin area by en­ter­ing 21 bat­tal­ions of Is­lamic ex­trem­ists, who are linked to FSA. Afrin has al­ways been a safe haven for dis­placed Syr­i­ans flee­ing from all the hot spots in Syria.

Brimo said Kurds have to unite all their forces in or­der to de­fend their peo­ple and pre­vent the ex­trem­ists from in­vad­ing their re­gion.

“We do not want kurds to get in­volved in the civil wars and secte­rian con­flics. We don’t al­low Is­lamic armed groups to im­pose sec­tar­ian be­liefs on Kurds in our re­gions. Our peo­ple re­ject this kind of sec­tar­ian con­flict the bloody regime tried to en­force since the early days of the rev­o­lu­tion,” ex­plained Brimo

He thinks the is­sues should be solved through peace and the Kur­dish re­gions should re­main iso­lated from the sec­tar­ian con­flicts which are tak­ing shape in many other ar­eas of Syria.

“All the Kur­dish po­lit­i­cal par­ties and forces in the Kur­dish Na­tional Coun­cil and the Kur­dish Supreme Com­mis­sion should work hard to re­solve their dif­fer­ences soon in or­der to be able to stand against any forces as­pir­ing to in­vade the Kur­dish re­gions.” Brimo con­cluded
