Rojava: Syria's Unknown War 4.5

As Syria's bloody civil war enters its third year, fighting has reached the country's Kurdish-dominated northeast, a region until recently almost untouched by the conflict. The Kurdish PYD party and its YPG militia, which is affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in neighboring Turkey, took over control of much of Hassakeh province from the Assad regime in the summer of 2012, and with it control of Syria's precious oilfields.

But the PYD's hopes of staying neutral in the conflict and building an autonomous Kurdish state were dashed when clashes broke out with Syrian rebel forces in the strategic border city of Ras al-Ayn. That encounter quickly escalated into an all-out war between the Kurds and a powerful alliance of jihadist groups, including the al-Qaeda affiliates ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra.

In September of 2013, VICE crossed the border into Syria's Kurdish region to document the YPG's counteroffensive against the jihadists, who had struck deep into rural Hassakeh in an attempt to surround and capture Ras al-Ayn. With unparalleled access to the Kurdish and Syrian Christian fighters on the frontlines, we found ourselves witnessing a bitter and almost unreported conflict within the Syrian war, where the Assad regime is a neutral spectator in a life or death struggle between jihadist-led rebels and Kurdish nationalists, pitting village against village and neighbor against neighbor.

Let's hope that Rojava won't end up like anarchist cantons of the Spanish Civil War that was destroyed by the nationalist and the republican. The Syrian Civil War is rerun of the Spanish Civil War, and Rojava is the reincarnation Anarchist Cantons of Spain that just want peace in there country.

The difference between the Kurd and the Iraqi Armies is shocking. The Iraqi army looks like bumbling idiots beside the Kurdish fighters. I especially love seeing the female Kurdish fighters. They are so brave and so disciplined. I think they, above all are truly fighting for their very existence.

Why is that that the Kurds are the only ones in the Middle East who seem to have their act together?!

Aris is the most ballsiest, down to earth, straight shooting reporter that Vice has ever had. I dislike Vice and avoid most of their content but i always come back to watch Aris footage.

The female Kurdish soldiers are brave women. And the humongous plus side of them fighting against IS savages is, when those get killed by a female they won't get their 72 virgins and paradise ( not like they would otherwise, but still ...). They are terrified of female soldiers.

*P.S. I totally love Genco the goat. If Genco ever needs rescuing, I would love to rescue this goat. :-)*

As a Kurd i believe this is a good representation of who we are and what we want. No arab nation would allow females (nevermind female soldiers) to be as equal to men as they are among us Kurds.

I am from Australia and even as a Non Kurd, I can see the injustices done by all four governments to the kurds, (Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey) - This is a special land where Babylonia sat, where the Garden of Eden is described to be and also where Noah's Ark is supposedly have crashed, it is really odd that this the largest ethnic group in the world without a country ??? -- These people have lived through so much and are still fighting to this day, they all deserve autonomy and the right to practice their own language and culture!
