Turkish Kurds fear Syria war outcome

Recent attacks by al-Qaeda-linked fighters against the ethnic group trigger concern over its future in the region.

Syria’s war has shifted political allegiances right across the Middle East, but Turkey’s ethnic Kurds worry they may become a victim of any resolution to the fighting.

Al-Qaeda and Sunni fighters see the Kurds as their second enemy after President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, threatening the minority group’s aspirations in both Syria and Turkey.
