News from the Revolution in Rojava and Wider Kurdistan
The Azadi Party – members of which were caught with explosives in Afrin two weeks ago and confessed to planning attacks against the YPG – are now under official investigation by the Kurdish Supreme Council according to a report by Özgür Gündem.
A meeting of the Kurdish Supreme Council took place in Qamişlo this Wednesday, September 4th. Representatives of both the Syrian Kurds National Parliament (ENKS) – Ehmed Sileman, Feysel Yusuf, İsmail Heme, Suud Mele and Beşar Emin – and the Rojava Kurds People’s Parliament (EGRK) – Aldar Xelil, İlham Ehmed, Sinem Mihemed and Ebdulselam Ehmed – took part. Salih Muslim was unable to attend as he was abroad.
According to Ehmed Sileman, members of the Kurdish Supreme Council officially accepted the plan for temporary administration long ago proposed by the YPG, and the subject of the Geneva 2 meetings also came up.
However according to Sileman, one of the main reasons the meeting had been called was to discuss the Azadi Party. An investigative committee made up of experts from the regions Aleppo and Afrin will be formed to look into the party. The party is accused of working together with al-Nusra and Turkish intelligence in their attacks on Rojava. The president of the Azadi Party, Mustafa Cuma, is currently living in the KRG.
Also according to the report the Kurdish Supreme council, which had not met in 6 months, will now meet more regularly.
