The Kurdish community has taken arms to fight al-Nusra Front and Takffiri groups after the terrorist groups failed to comply with a truce made in Eid-al-Fitr celebration.
â€œWe have fiercely repelled Salafi groups who attacked Kudish enclaves of Tel Hassel , Tel Aran and Tal Abyad,â€ Saleh Muslim Mohammad, Secretary-General of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) told Al-Alam TV news channel on Monday.
He said that the Kurdish community fight against Salafists and do not consider them Muslims, because Muslim will never commit such criminal acts and atrocities.
â€œVarious armed groups claim to be free but salafists and al-Nusra Fronts are neither freedom-seekers nor have an organized army,â€ the secretary general told Al-Alam.
The Kurdish community in northern Syria announced a three-day truce on the occasion of Eid-al-Fitr, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan, but the anti-government opposition groups did not act in conformity with the ceasefire and continued attacks against civilians.
The three-day deadline ended on Sunday and the Kurdish committees resumed operation to provide security to the Kurdish areas, Mohammad said.
The Democratic Union Party leader said that in his visit to Turkey, he discussed with Turkish authorities over the threats by Takffiri groups affiliated to the al-Qaeda linked al-Nusra Front, but Ankara said they have no ties to the groups and only support the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA).
Mohammad urged Turkish officials to adopt necessary measures to block Takffiri militants from entering Syria through Turkish borders, but Turkish officials maintained that Turkey is not acting as a conduit for terrorist groups.
