Outside of the marxist faction within Kurdish movement/resistance, they are the only ones worth rooting for.

ALEPPO – Major Yasser Abd al-Rahim, Commander of the rebel group of Fatah Halab Operations Chamber in Aleppo, said on Tuesday that they will attack the Kurds in Aleppo, after the mainly Islamist rebels broke the siege of the Syrian regime on Aleppo city. On the other hand, Kurdish officials told ARA News they expect a long war to take place in Syria.
The rebel commander accused the Kurdish forces of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) of helping the regime, and said that their forces will not leave the al-Castello road under control of either the Kurds or the regime.
Earlier, Syrian regime troops managed to cut off the main supply road for opposition rebels –known as Castello road– and imposed a full siege over the city of Aleppo, however Syrian rebels eventually were be able to break the siege after getting reinforcements from other regions like Idlib.
Abd al-Rahim said that the Syrian opposition militias will take ‘revenge’ for the Syrian rebels that were killed by YPG, after they attacked YPG positions, vowing that Kurds “will not find a place to bury their dead in Aleppo”.
In the meantime, YPG official Siamand Rojava rejected the accusations, suggesting that the ‘radical groups’ of the opposition continue to attack and kill unarmed civilians in the Kurdish neighbourhood of Sheikh Maqsoud by artillery shelling.
