As the conflict in Syria wages on, is it possible the Kurds will emerge the biggest beneficiaries? Earlier this month the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) announced they would set up a transitional civic administration in Northeastern Syria. The statement was made after their military wing captured key towns and villages. But the move has generated angry reactions from Syrian rebels, Turkey and even rival Kurdish Syrian groups.
