Syrian Kurdistan,— Members of the Kurdish People’s Defense Units (YPG), in Syrian Kurdistan, alleged they have found two Turkish documents in the Susik town in the Grespiye region following the withdrawal of fighters from the al-Nusra Front.

Rizgar, a YPG fighter who preferred to be identified only by his first name, said, “After we saved Susik village from the al-Nusra Islamic group, we found some documents, books and Turkish passports. We also found a Quran and a booklet to train soldiers, both the books were in Arabic and Turkish," Rizgar said.

A journalist in Syria-Kurdistan touched on the discovery and alluded to what the finding of the documents could potentially mean.

"We are not saying that Turkish government is helping the Islamic groups but apparently some anonymous power from Turkey is behind the Islamic groups spread in Syria and they kill Kurds,” Mistefa Bali, a journalist said.

Turkey has been a vocal opponent against political parties in Syria-Kurdistan who are planning to claim autonomy in the north of Syria as the civil war rages on.  

 
 

In a response, the Turkish military sent reinforcements to Turkish areas that border Syria, claiming it has a parliamentary mandate to intervene if the Kurdish threat becomes too large.

In a recent interview with RT, Hassan Muhammad, a representative from the Kurdish Democratic Union in Europe said, “regional forces, especially Turkey,www.ekurd.net are helping militants logistically and opening cross-border points for them to infiltrate Kurdish areas.

YPG soldiers also claimed that during a battle with al-Nusra in Susik, they could hear fighters in the area speaking Sorani, a dialect spoken by Kurds.

A YPG fighter, speaking on the condition of anonymity, also alleged that he heard fighters speaking Sorani during clashes in the Grespiye region.

"I could overhear some shouts saying "Revolution, strive." I have stayed in Sulaimani for a while and I have been with Sorani people in the city. I know what a Sorani accent sounds like and I could hear Sorani words that I heard in Sulaimani," he said.

Lately, al-Nusra has been clashing with Syrian-Kurdish forces in the north of the Syria, which has even led to allegations of massacres of Syrian-Kurds by Islamist groups.

The clashes began after claims were made by pro-Free Syrian Army forces that the dominant political party in Syria-Kurdistan, the Democratic Union Party (PYD), was backing Bashar al-Assad and giving support to his forces.

All this comes at a time when Iraqi Kurdish President Massoud Barzani has called for an investigation into the massacre of Syrian-Kurds by Al-Qaeda forces in Syria and said the Iraqi Kurdish region is prepared to do anything to protect Kurdish men, women and children in Syria if the claims are true.

This has sparked the fear that the Syrian civil war could become full-blown regional, ethnic and sectarian conflict.
