    Kurdish fighters seized control Tuesday of a key border town from the Islamic State (ISIS) group, cutting a major supply line in the biggest setback yet for the jihadists in Syria. From across the frontier in Turkey, the Kurds and allied Syrian rebels could be seen raising their banners in place of the black ISIS flag and taking up positions at the Tal Abyad border post, reports AFP. Fighters with the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) militia waved their yellow banner as Turkish troops looked on from the other side of the frontier.

    There is significant concern that Turkey’s planned ground invasion into Syria to root out the U.S.-allied Kurds could open the floodgates for the release of thousands of imprisoned Islamic State terrorists. Syrian Kurdish forces have incarcerated thousands of ISIS terrorists from more than 50 countries in prisons in northeastern Syrian. Brigadier Gen. Patrick Ryder, the Pentagon’s press secretary, said Wednesday, "Recent air strikes in Syria directly threatened the safety of U.S. personnel who are working in Syria with local partners to defeat ISIS and maintain custody of more than 10,000 ISIS detainees." Turkey recently launched air strikes targeting the Syrian...

President Bashar al-Assad was supported by Russia and Iran while the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia was backed by the United States. But in 2019 then-President Donald Trump...

I’m pretty sure that is what happened on January 6. This will be echoed by the lapdog media and this is where gun confiscation will start. Please tell me how I’m wrong

    NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Wednesday that Turkey had dropped its block on a plan to bolster the defences of Baltic states and Poland against Russia. He told a news conference after an alliance summit outside London that NATO leaders did not discuss the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, which Turkey views as a terrorist organisation. Ahead of the summit, Ankara had refused to back the NATO defence plan for the Baltics and Poland until it received more support for its battle with the YPG, including other alliance members recognising it as a terrorist group.

    AMMAN (Reuters) - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Thursday that his government’s ultimate goal was to restore state authority over Kurdish controlled areas in northeast Syria after an abrupt U.S. troop withdrawal but he expected it to happen gradually. In a state television interview Assad also said that a deal between Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin to drive out the Kurdish-led YPG militia from a 30 km (19 mile) “safe zone” along the border was a “positive” step that would help Damascus achieve its goal. “It might not achieve everything ... it paves the road...

The PKK said in Friday's letter that it “refused comparisons” to ISIS after Trump said at a press conference on Wednesday that the Kurds were “no angels” and that the PKK is likely “more of a terrorist threat” than ISIS. “We refuse comparisons being made between our movement and the inhumane thugs of ISIS,” the PKK’s...

    Kurdish forces allied to the U.S.-led coalition in the fight against the Islamic State have committed war crimes by deliberately displacing thousands of civilians and demolishing their homes in northern Syria, according to a human rights group. In a report released Tuesday, Amnesty International said that the People's Protection Units (YPG)—the military wing of the Syrian Kurdish political party, the Democratic Union Party—had in some cases threatened residents with U.S. airstrikes if they did not leave their homes. The YPG has been a key ally on the ground for Western forces battling ISIS in Syria. Earlier this year, the YPG...
