Kurdish forces in Syria are ready to take ISIL’s last border crossing with Turkey – its bridge to Europe and the world. This would isolate ISIL and cut its lifeline of supplies and jihadi volunteers. [1]

The Syrian Kurds are genuine democrats, and the most effective force against ISIL on the ground . Aided by air cover from the US, they have already driven ISIL from the rest of the northern border – with no reported ‘collateral damage’.

The only obstacle is the Turkish government: it favours ISIL over a Kurdish-led administration, and is widely understood to be aiding jihadi groups. If we are serious about seeing ISIL shut down, we must stand up to Turkey’s sectarianism.

By capturing the last stretch of border in ISIL’s hands – the area around Jarabulus – the Kurds are ready to deal ISIL a serious blow. They are real allies : we must support them.


Aidez les Kurdes de couper la route vers l'Europe de l'EIIL

Nous demandons à la coalition menée par les USA pour aider les forces kurdes de prendre le dernier passage de la frontière avec la Turquie de l'EIIL - leur pont vers l'Europe . Ce serait d'isoler l'EIIL et couper sa ligne d'alimentation et arrêter le flot de volontaires djihadistes. [1]

Les Kurdes syriens sont vrais démocrates , et la force la plus efficace contre l'EIIL sur le terrain . Aidé par une couverture aérienne des États-Unis , ils ont pris tous les risques pour libérer de vastes zones du nord de la Syrie - sans signalé «dommages collatéraux» .

Le seul obstacle est le gouvernement turc, qui préfère l'EIIL à l'administration kurde. Si nous voulons sérieusement d'arrêter de l'EIIL, nous devons nous lever contre le sectarisme de la Turquie.

En capturant le dernier tronçon de la frontière entre les mains de l'EIIL - la zone autour de Jarabulus - Les Kurdes sont prêts à faire face un sérieux coup à l'EIIL. Ils sont de véritables alliés : nous devons les soutenir.
