Col. Oqaidi on Kurds

Oqaidi: I would like to clarify first that the problem is not with Liwa al-Tawhid, but the whole Free Syrian Army. This problem was generated by the PKK and PYD (the Democratic Union of Kurdistan) against the Free Syrian Army. We have no problem with the Kurdish people.

We have Kurdish fighters and battalions that are fighting alongside with the FSA. However, this conflict has been forced on us and we have to deal with it on the ground. We wish that we can solve it peacefully and not to see it escalate. But we have to deal with it. The PYD and PKK is an extension of the regime militias and they’re fighting on their behalf. /  Posted by Wladimir van Wilgenburg
