We are deeply concerned about the fight between the Rojava Peshmerga and the Shingal Protection Units YP? in Khanasoor area. We appeal to both sides to immediately stop all hostilities and solve political differences. Both sides should keep in mind that any political and military support from the European Union or its member states also depend on the peaceful solution of Intra-Kurdish problems. The political future of Shingal should be discussed by the local inhabitants of the region according to their right for self-determination and not by armed infights of militias.
