The Kurds have also taken the villages Al-Darbasiyah and Amuda under their control; they asked the security forces of the Syrian government to leave these cities.Aldar Khamil, representative of the Supreme Council of the Kurds:We have agreed it with the Syrian army. They do not interfere in our affairs, the army is not on site, but even if the army would be here, we would have nothing against it – it is their land. The terrorists, who penetrate up to here, are not from here. The ones we saw were all foreigners. They are constantly under the protection of the Turkish army, and when they cross the border, they get plans and support by the Turks for this..Kovan Tarsu, taxi driver:I am convinced that the problems come from the Turkish government. It wants to eliminate the Kurds, anywhere in the world. That’s why it is interfering in our lives now. Whatever was in the past, we are above all Syrians, then Kurds. Therefore we are going to defend our homeland.
