PYD Doesn’t Accept Any Military Force Apart From YPG

Allegations by Welati (non-PYD) Kurdish tribes and KNC who went to People’s House/PYD to form a military force to support the YPG were rejected in Girkê Legê (Al-Ma’bada). According to PYD/YPG anyone who can carry a weapon can join the YPG. PYD rejects any military force apart from the YPG. The PYD is scared that two military forces could lead to a civil war as what happened in Iraqi Kurdistan in the 1990s between PUK (Talabani) and KDP (Barzani). Clashes continue in Al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa). In Dêrika Hemko (Al-Malikiyah) the local council called on youth last Sunday to take up arms and join YPG against armed groups.
