This one boils my blood. Israel and the Kurds have had a working relationship for years, as they have shared many common enemies. However, it appears that Israel’s former alliance with Turkey has been used to attack the Kurdish people.
According to the Israeli source Debka, Israeli-made drones operated by Turkey have been used to attack Kurdish villages in coordination with a Syrian offensive. This particular sentence is infuriating:
The drones are being used to track Kurds in flight across Syria’s borders, mainly into Lebanon, where Hizballah is helping Syria hunt the refugees down.
This is a global outrage. The Kurdish people in Iraq finally got a modicum of freedom and now their torturers in Syria, Turkey, and Iran have stepped up their efforts. And to use such terrorists as Hezbollah to help in this effort is just another reminder of the Kurdish people’s opposition to groups like al Qaeda and other Islamist groups.
Furthermore, this is helping the Islamic Republic of Iran:
Debkafile‘s intelligence sources have no doubt that Iranian intelligence officers stationed in Damascus and Beirut jumped at the opportunity to learn more about the Israeli wonder-drones.
What a terrible shame. It is my hope that the Kurdish people are able to overthow their oppressors in Assad, Khamenei, and Erdogan.
