The Fight For a Kurdish State I VICE on HBO

The Kurds have played an instrumental role in the fight against ISIS. Although their case for independence is rarely made, the Kurds are the largest ethnic group in the world without a state of their own. They’re also one of the only peoples to suffer an attempted genocide since the Holocaust.

In Iraqi Kurdistan, Vice’s Ben Anderson met those involved in the fight from the frontline to the Kurd’s former guerrilla president to ask why the group recently voted for independence and what hopes they have for achieving a state of their own.

Trump’s Chaotic Syria Plan Doesn’t Just Screw the Kurds, It Could help ISIS

Summary: It’s been two days since President Trump announced he was pulling back American tro from key posts on the Syrian-Turkish border. The decision has been met with severe backlash, even from some of his most ardent supporters. If Turkish forces invade, it could have severe consequences for the people living in Northern Syria.

In Syria’s breadbasket, Kurds and regime battle for wheat | AFP

After years of drought and civil war, Syria is expected to rake in its best harvest in a long time this summer. But the lion’s share of that crop lies in the northeast of the country, in a semi-autonomous Kurdish region beyond full government control. Both sides, the Kurds and the Damascus regime, are desperately battling to get their hands on the invaluable crop. The Kurds are determined to hang on to a strategic resource in the third of the country they hold, while the government wants to restock its siloes and feed its people ahead of retaking full control of the northeast.
