ANALYSIS: Kurds see ‘no friends but the mountains’ after US rebuke

ANALYSIS: Kurds see ‘no friends but the mountains’ after US rebuke | Middle East Eye – The YPG on Thursday heeded the US order it must not control areas west of the Euphrates river, and has withdrawn some forces from the front lines around Jarabulus and Manbij, a town it took from IS earlier this month. But Kurds have taken the US statements to be proof of a collaboration with Turkey to undermine their goal of creating a contiguous confederation in northern Syria, after they have served their purpose as shock troops against IS. Erwin Stran, a US volunteer with the YPG, said the US statement was a stab in the back. “I guess it’s true what they say. ‘Kurds have no friends but the mountains’,” he told Middle East Eye. “I’m just as confused as I’m sure the Kurds are at this point.”
