[millionday] On Aug. 3, this collaboration took place: YPG, the People’s Protection Units of Rojava (Syria’s Kurdistan) joined Iraqi Kurdistan Region peshmerga forces and rescued some of the peshmerga forces after the Islamic State (IS) offensive on Sinjar after the Kurdistan Region had put an embargo on Rojava for almost three years.
In the past three years, there have been political conflicts between the two biggest Kurdish political parties, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), led by Abdulla Ocalan, and the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), led by Masoud Barzani, over ruling Rojava and sharing power between their two affiliated parties; the pro-PKK Democratic Union Party (PYD) and the pro-KDP Kurdistan Democratic Party-Syria (KDP-S).
[millionday] NOTE --NOT KNOWN BY MANY -- SYRIA AND KURDS ARE STANDING TOGETHER TO FIGHT
[millionday] Diyar Qamishlo, representative of The Syrian Kurdistan's Democratic Society Movement (TEV-DEM) in Iraqi Kurdistan, told Al-Monitor that in the past three years since Rojava’s revolution started, PYD was able to form three cantons.
On the other side, KDP-S and KDP accuse PYD of ruling Rojava unilaterally. “We helped the peshmerga forces and rescued them from death. We did this wholeheartedly as we believe this was what people expected us to do,”
said Qamishlo. Ali Hussein, KDP’s member of the Leadership Council, did not hide his party’s concerns about PKK. He told Al-Monitor, “We have had relations with PKK since the 1980s and we have had common ideas, but we have also had differences.
The problem of PKK and PYD is that they are not coordinating with other parties in Rojava. They should share power with them, but of course we have appreciated the collaborations.”
millionday] NOTE -- THIS IS HISTORICAL AT THIS POINT AND WILL BE READ IN HISTORY BOOKS
millionday] Sa’di Ahmed Pira, a PUK politburo member, is optimistic that the changes in regional political dynamics will strengthen the relations with the Kurdistan Regional Government, including KDP, and PKK.
He told Al-Monitor that PKK and YPG military support for peshmerga forces in fighting IS had already been agreed upon. Last year, the KDP dug a long trench between Iraqi Kurdistan and PYD-controlled areas of Syria.
At that time, the trenches were considered as a “betrayal” by pro-PKK media and loyalists. Pira said that these events will not return, because “the ones who dug the trenches are now filling them after being assured that YPG forces will not be a threat. IS had one positive , which is that it brought us all together.”
millionday] Hitherto, PKK and YPG forces have taken part in fighting against ISIS in the three front lines: Jalawla, Makhmour and Sinjar. Soon after the IS attacks, YPG joined peshmerga forces and helped rescuing them and hundreds of thousands of Yazidis who had been stranded in Mount Sinjar.
Despite that peshmerga has better weaponry than YPG and PKK guerrillas, the latter have been more successful in fighting IS. Salah Dilmani, brigadier of Ballak 118 Brigade, who has led the fighting against IS in Jalawla frontline, highly appreciated YPG and PKK support of peshmerga.
Dilmani told Al-Monitor of his happiness about PKK’s intervention and showed willingness to continue these military collaborations. “We should not be ashamed that YPG and PKK forces are much more skillful in fighting against IS, undoubtedly, they have very good experiences.”
