Leadership of the Syrian Kurdistan is going to announce setting up of the Army of Rojava and northern Syria.
In the near future, leaders of Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava) are going to announce creation of the Army of Rojava and northern Syria, the Kurdish К24 TV-channel reported in reportage about celebration of the second anniversary of the proclamation of the Kurdish autonomy in northern Syria. Kurdish regions in the north of the country are divided into cantons: Jazira, Kobani and Afrin.
Rezan Gilo, Deputy Commander of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Women’s Protection Units (YPJ), told journalists that the Rojava Army will be the armed forces of a new autonomous entity, named the ‘Rozhava – Northern Syria Democratic Federal System’.
The Syrian authorities in Damascus do not officially recognize the Kurdish autonomy, proclaimed in 2014, but they can do nothing with it because the Syrian government has absolutely no control over the north of the country.
