MESOP NEWS SYRIA : KURDISH RESIGNATIONS ! Kurdish Official Quits Opposition Syrian National Council

25 Jan 2018 – MESOP – Kurdish official Abdulbaset Sieda has resigned from the opposition Syrian National Council, protesting the SNC’s support of “side projects” like “what’s happening in Afrin.”.

Sieda helped found the Syrian National Council, serving as President for five months in 2012, and then the Syrian National Coalition. The Kurdish National Council split from the SNC earlier this week when the Coalition said Turkish-rebel military operations are a campaign to “liberate” Afrin from Kurdish militia and “purge Syria of terrorism”. “We call for a halt to the bombardment and military operations,” the KNC said.
