KT News:

Following recent terrorist attacks by the Al-Qaeda linked Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS), including the bombings of Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) offices and today’s dramatic news that ISIS has captured Mosul, Iraq’s second biggest city, the Rojava-based YPG (People’s Defence Units) has today proposed a united front of west and south Kurdistan military forces against the common foe.

Firat News reports the statement as follows:

“As a result of savage, terrorist bomb attacks carried out by ISIS gangs in Khanaqin, Jalawla and Tuz Khurmatu on PUK buildings, dozens of Southern Kurdistan citizens have been martyred and many others wounded in recent days. The massacres carried out in the city of Mosul and the forced displacement of people are also an assault on the entire Kurdish people. These attacks are targeting all the gains of the Kurds….

“As the YPG we have been struggling against these extremist groups for over 18 months now. We have stressed on many occasions that the aim of these ISIS gangs is to wipe out the Kurdish people. We have gained valuable experience in our resistance against these gangs and our fighters have fought heroically….

“YPG forces share the pain of the people of South Kurdistan and offer their condolences to the families of those who died and a speedy recovery to the injured. We declare here that we will fight side by side with the people of South Kurdistan and the peshmerga forces against the gangs. We announce we are ready to support the South and prepared to send our military experts to assist.”

    ISIS is a creation of Washington to serve thier political interests. There are no Russian Kurds waging war at all. Do not place the blame on Russia. Russia has never supported violence and terrorism. Kurds beware not to get involved in any ideological war and maintain your neutrality. We all know who has established, funded and orchestrate the ISIS drama behind the scene. Best opportunity to reclaim all Kurdish areas back now. There also conspiracies to undermine KRG over the oil sale. All Kurdish Forces and political parties must merge and unite. Do not give dictator Barzani and his tugs a pretext to extend his term again. Even if South becomes independent, this wont justify his family to rule South for decades like numerous other kings, monarchs and dictators.

    Coward dictator ( Barzani) has left the country again when Kurds are in a crisis? How come every time after he departs South something happens. Looks like everything is a sham scenario?
