As Turkey continues with its stance in claiming the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and actors in Rojava (the term Kurds use to refer to western Kurdistan in Syria) are one in the same, Co-chairman of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) Salih Muslim was accused of involvement in the Feb. 17 bomb attack in Ankara. Along with key PKK names, including Cemil Bayik, Murat Karayilan, Fehman Huseyin, Zubeyir Aydar and Remzi Kartal, now there is also an arrest warrant for Muslim.
Muslim is a Syrian citizen who was born in Kobani. Somebody in Ankara must be hoping that an Interpol red bulletin will enable Turkey to nab him in Prague, Berlin or Paris, and that he will no longer be addressing the European Parliament. Muslim is a Syrian Kurd who knows Turkey and speaks the Turkish language very well.
