The Ezidi Council has announced its resignation from the Kurdish National Council and the Turkey-based Syrian National Council (SNC) that has been the main political opponent to Assad since 2011, according to Kurdish media.
Kurdish media sources says this occurred after months of tension with the Kurdish Council leadership and the SNC.
The Ezidi Council says it remained quiet on the issue to prevent inter-Kurd conflict.
This announcement comes as Syrian media sources claim that the Kurds are preparing to federalise their areas of control within a month.
They stated their reasons for leaving was the failure to acknowledge the SNC’s Arabism and Islamism problems and that there is no formal recognition of the Yazidis, a religious minority that are ethnically related to Kurds.
