          What should they do? When they are fighting ISIS (at least defending their territory), and Turkey (a Member with a capital Nato), conducts a police operation in the capital of their autonomy. Damn Israel was given the territory for the foundation of the state (there was a precedent as the lawyers say), and why the rest of the taboos?
          And as fighters, I respect them.

        This is the Syrian Kurds. They control enclaves in the north of the country, near the border with Turkey. Now we need to wait for their bombing from Turkey.

          Friends, excuse me, but be careful: - IRAQI Kurds went on the offensive. And Sinjar is located in the north of Iraq. So, - this operation is carried out in the north of Iraq. hi

          Well, why argue, then what we do not know comrade ??
          The attack will be carried out by Iraqi Kurds on Sinjar, which is located in the north of Iraq, not Syria. The population is mainly Yazidis. At first, they captured the Sinjar women and enslaved the women, because they wrote a lot. With the support of US aviation. acting with the help of them, the forces of the Islamic State were stopped, otherwise they had already entered Iraqi Kurdistan. Now they decided to push them a little further.

          In general, it turns out funny. The USA bombed Ig, did not allow the Kurds to get in, stopped it, but there wasn’t much further from aviation.
          Iran and Iraq bombed them and drove them from Shiite areas, but I can not smoke from the Sunni.
          The Russian Federation bombed them from the Latakian regions of the Alevites, but cannot succeed in the occupied regions.
          In fact, all coalitions achieved the strength of their Air Force to drive IS away from their strategic allies, but then everything stalled.

            Dear Ali, I understand correctly that the differences between Kurds and Yezidis are only in religion?
            If you know please answer hi

                as far as I know, Muslim Kurds do not really favor the Yezidis and do not particularly want to fraternize with them.
                or am i wrong?

                  Kurds are generally a heterogeneous people, so to speak. They don’t even have a common language.

            Well, I’ve gotten used to the fact that on this site there are not a few people who read one, see the other, or even don’t even bother to read. they don’t know anything.
            Here, for example, there are a lot of people who are completely sure that Turkey lives off not very rich tourists from Tagil))) True, the Russians went 600 thousand less in Turkey, but in Turkey it is somehow quiet)))
            Last year, many here citing even some data proved to others that the Russian economy does not depend on energy exports, they say its share is insignificant, but prices fell and the broads collapsed)))

        From this photo it is difficult to say who the fighters are provided with. "Replicas" of Amer uniforms are made in almost any country, especially in the outdated "woodland" color. Even the shoe protector on the famous Amer "Altama" is no longer unique for a long time.

      and the "bearded" especially with the Kurds beyond their territory will NOT BUT!
      and, the Kurds will go beyond their territories only if the United States gives them the go-ahead.
      So, the number of opposing Assad’s army of ISIS will NOT DECREASE because of this Kurdish offensive

        Anyone can be on the photo presented, but most of all the fighters are not like the Peshmerga, but the Assad regulars.

    Here's how it was lit on Gazeta.ru. So you should not expect any interaction. Although who knows.

    US-backed Kurds launch offensive on IS
    Kurdish Peshmerga militias launched an attack on the Islamic State’s position in Iraq, Reuters reports.
    As part of the new operation, the Kurds intend to liberate the city of Sinjar in northern Iraq. The city was captured by the Islamists at the end of 2014.
    The attack is supported by US airstrikes and coalitions. It is noted that Sinjar is a strategic point for the IG connecting two of their main bastions in Iraq and Syria - Mosul and Rakku.

    I would like to think that this is their Kurdish initiative. and not a hint of the United States. for any Americans want to stake out some territory in Syria for themselves. That would harm the situation in Syria from the inside. after the defeat of the Islamic State.

    On Star TV, there’s another good news: Saudi Arabia declared the US an oil war.
