Over 700 Kurds Kidnapped in Syria
“Kurds do not want to get involved in to sectarian conflicts”
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
