The incident took place near the town of Khanasur, controlled by predominantly Shingal Protection Units (YBS) a Yazidi militia affiled with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). YBS supporters marched towards positions occupied by pro-Barzani forces.

    No wonder the Kurds were shunned and never had their own state, similar to the Jews.

    Just typical Kurd’s acting as typical Kurdish-bigots always do.
    They are also among the Zionist and Israels closest allies.
    Seems they have the same aims and goals in mind all along.
