President of Iraqi Kurdistan ready to defend Kurds in Syria

Barzani said that he wants a committee to be formed to look into reports of  violence, and has hinted that the autonomous region of northern Iraq, which has  a well-equipped army, would intervene militarily to defend Syrian Kurds.

In a letter which he posted online Saturday on the Kurdistan Regional  Government (KRG) website, he said that he told Kurdish representatives to go to  Syria and investigate reports that “terrorists of Al-Qaeda are attacking the  civilian population and slaughtering innocent Kurdish women and  children.”

“If the reports are true, showing that citizens, women and children of  innocent Kurds are under threat from murder and terrorism, Iraq’s Kurdistan  region will make use of all its capabilities to defend women and children and  innocent civilians,” the letter continued.
