ʿAyn al‑ʿArab: Kurdish Councils reach an agreement

KURDWATCH, August 7, 2013—On July 24, 2013, a meeting took place ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî) between members of the local committee of the Kurdish National Council and the People's Council of Western Kurdistan. Both sides agreed to form a joint political committee to administer ʿAyn al‑ʿArab. According to a statement by the local committee of the Kurdish National Council, in this way, social peace in the Kurdish regions will be protected. After the attacks by the Democratic Union Party's (PYD) People's Defense Units (YPG) in ʿAmudah [further information], the Kurdish National Council's committee from ʿAyn al‑ʿArab had left the Supreme Kurdish Committee, in which both the People's Council of Western Kurdistan and the Kurdish National Council hold fifty percent of the representation, in protest. The meeting took place in the wake of increased fighting between the YPG and Islamic units of the Free Syrian Army, especially in neighboring Tall Abyad[further information].
