 From the article above:

"In July 2012, an uprising occurred in three predominantly Kurdish
cantons known collectively as Rojava in the Kurdish language. People
surrounded the Assad regime’s military bases and called on the soldiers
to surrender. In most cases, they did so. With regime forces stretched
by fighting rebels on multiple fronts, those who resisted were quickly

upon soldiers to surrender? I seem to have trouble finding a reference

to Assad abandoning territory to Kurds in order to focus on killing the
rebels that you people consider so politically backward compared to the
acolytes of Murray Bookchin. I admit that I have not read all the
hundreds of articles about Kurds and Assad in 2012 but the first 25 or
