Syrian Kurdish fighters help their Iraqi counterparts in an offensive against Islamic State (ISIS / Daesh / ISIL) in its stronghold of Mosul and towns and villages around it.

“Our goal is to return to our areas in Syria. Our people need us, it is true that we are helping out here but if we leave they can get by. They have enough forces, our participation was not due to a lack of peshmerga, it was to fulfil our duty. But still our goal remains to return to our country in Syria,” commander said.

“We are participating with these troops because we see the light in them, we see freedom in them, we see a path back to Syria with them,” he added.

“The president says that Kurdish-Kurdish fighting is a red line, there is no way we will fight against the Kurdish people or any other Kurdish parties. I am willing to be here (for years). There is no difference between Iraqi Kurdistan and Syrian Kurdistan. I am willing to fight terrorism and any entity that encroaches on the Kurdistan region;” he emphasized.
