These states of the secretary of Kurdish Progressive Democratic Party in Syria Abdul Hameed Darwish that were directed to Haythem al-Maleh on Sunday after he sent a message to the UN under the title “Kurdish Militia Crimes” signed by the head of legal body of Syrian National Coalition.
The massage included:
“An opened massage to the brother Haythem al-Maleh……
I was surprised that you listed YPG in the black list of terrorism while you have previously struggled against oppression, but your attitude today about these valiant forces that deserve honor for their fighting Jabhet al-Nusrah, IS and other terrorist, extremist and ethicist forces distorts your history as this does not match up with your past which defended justice and right.
Here, we do not defend YPG from a national point of view, rather, they proved their existence by fighting extremism and terrorism and dealt them harsh blows all over the country, they also sacrificed a lot. In spite of the mistakes they have made here and there, they kept resistant against these obscurantist forces. YPG also did not commit purging ethnic operations against other components especially Arabs as they protected them in the Kurdish areas and out of them. Moreover, they comprised a big number of fighters from other components which reaches almost half of these units.
On this occasion, we generally direct to the opponent forces and especially the Syrian National Coalition to stop distorting the Kurdish people’s image and their honorable struggle, and we call for Mr. Haythem al-Maleh and his participants in this attitude to get rid of this narrow national mindset and to stand side by side against those obscurantist forces that threaten the Syrian nation’s unity”.
