Kurds In Syria To U.S Ally Turkey: Stop Attacking Us And Stop Supporting Al-Qaeda

Read "YPG Warns Turkey Against Further Provocations" by The Rojava Report, September 21, 2013:
According to two separate reports in – found here and here - the General Command of the YPG has released an official warning to the Turkish State in which it calls on Turkey to cease hostilities against the YPG. Turkey has long been known to be backing al-Qaeda affiliated groups in Rojava such as the al-Nusra Front, which has been involved in heavy fighting with the YPG this summer. However the warning followed two cross-border attacks yesterday in which Turkish soldiers fired directly on YPG positions. In total 5 YPG fighters were killed. According to the reports the General Command’s warning read thus:

If the Turkish State continues to insist on supporting armed groups this will only have negative consequences. These operations being carried out by the Turkish State are hurting regional security and need to end.
Below is an excerpt from, "2 Free Syrian Army brigades join Al Nusrah Front" by Bill Roggio, The Long War Journal, September 20, 2013:
The merger of two FSA units with al Qaeda comes as the US and European nations are seeking to step up the arming of Syrian rebels in the wake of a chemical attack outside Damascus that is said to have been carried by President Bashir al Assad's forces. But as Islamist forces continue to grow and are now dominating the insurgency, the ability of the US to properly vet FSA units and prevent weapons from falling into the hands of al Qaeda and its allies becomes more difficult.

Just yesterday, the Wall Street Journal reported that an FSA weapons and ammunition depot was raided by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Long-awaited shipments of US military aid to the rebels, including lethal weapons, began arriving in August. The Supreme Military Council , which has complained of the inadequacy of US support so far, claimed on Sept. 12 that it had not received any of the military aid. In July, an ISIL leader claimed that the FSA is selling it weapons.
The United States and Turkey have made their beds. They are siding with al-Qaeda and other Islamic terrorist groups against liberated Kurdish cities and towns.

America only talks of freedom for minorities in the Middle East, while it secretly and deceptively supports al-Qaeda and Islamic terrorism.
