Where can I find a Syrian Kurdish embassy? Ohhh you mean the Kurdistan that is a region of Iraq and NOT a separate country? Yeah, what does that have to do with the topic?

Good call.

Unfortunately I don't see anything constructive coming out of this political football anytime soon.

It's going to be a proxy war of pride, and a pissing contest. (none of that is aimed at you other than the good call.)

CEYLANPINAR, Turkey (AP) — The cease-fire in northern Syria got off to a rocky start Friday, as Kurdish leaders accused Turkey of violating the accord with continued fighting at a key border town while casting doubt on provisions in the U.S.-brokered deal with Ankara.

Turkey’s president warned that Turkish forces would go back on the attack in four days unless Kurdish-led fighters withdraw “without exception” from a zone 20 miles (30 kilometers) deep in Syria running the entire 260-mile (440-kilometer) length of the border.

“Without exception, if the promise is not fulfilled, Operation Peace Spring will resume the minute the 120 hours end with even more determination,” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told journalists in Ankara.


Syria cease-fire off to rocky start amid reports of fighting

There are many different factions involved and it will be hard to get them to all stop fighting. If Turkey does not get a buffer zone at the border I have no doubt they will continue with the invasion.

The Kurdish Red Crescent said in a statement that six patients, both civilian and military, were in hospital in Hasakah with burns from “unknown weapons” and it was working to evaluate what had been used.

It said it could not confirm the use of chemical weapons and was “working together with our international partners to investigate this subject”.

A British chemical weapons expert sent photographs from a former colleague of a child with a badly burned torso in a frontline hospital said he thought it was likely they showed chemical burns.

How about you do the same. You just made yourself look like a complete fool. The KRG is a semi-autonomous region in Iraq. It has literally nothing to do with Syria, or Kurdistan as a separate country. It is part of Iraq. I repeat, it has nothing to do with Syrian Kurds.

Here is from your source.

2005: In a national referendum, Iraqis vote in favour of a new constitution. The new constitution, which is approved by 78% of voters, recognises the Kurdistan Region's institutions including the Kurdistan Regional Government and the Kurdistan Parliament.


Again, Iraq, not Syria. I already told you this, and you kept making your foolish posts. So please tell me what the KRG has to do with Syrian Kurds or the wish of the Kurds in general to form a Kurdistan nation encompassing the 4 regions of Greater Kurdistan?

Feel free to get educated and come back and talk to me.

Again, do reading instead of skim reading, pretending and repeatedly failing to understand what the Levant/ISISISIL is/was and why these conflicts are going on and have been going on fo decades.

Kurdistan in Syria was recognised in March 2016 as federal system of government in the area, photos of the conference are on the website if you'd have read it.

60 million civilian lives are at stake, the fourth biggest ethnic group in the area. It's illegal for them to write, speak, dress or act Kurdish, are forced into mountain zones, stripped of all human rights and slaughtered.

If you'd have read the site or followed current affairs in the region you'd know Erdgodan has ordered all Kurds in Iran, Syria, Turkey and Iraq to leave or e ethnically cleansed - Turkey has been bombing Kurdistan and the Kurds in Iraq since 2016 - the US and Trump have repeatedly spoken out against this and the ongoing holocaust against the Kurds in Syria until Trump announced troop withdrawals in May 2018 and handed Ergodan his goal on a silver plattter,

“That is the current game plan, things can change between now and whenever we complete the withdrawal but that is the game plan right now,” the senior official added.

It is unclear whether the U.S. troops will use Iraq as a base to launch ground raids into Syria and carry out airstrikes against Islamic State militants.

The additional U.S. troops would add to the more than 5,000 American troops already based in the country, training Iraqi forces and helping to ensure that Islamic State militants do not resurge.

It looks like the troops were only moved out of the way of the Turkish invasion and will still be in the region to help when needed.
