Captain Dlovan Rubari in interview with Al Jazeera has said that the Syrian Peshmerga forces will enter to Syria to help the Syrian Opposition forces in their fight against Syrian Government forces and Islamic State in northern Syria with the support of the International community and it will try not to combat with their political rivals PYD and its military wing [YPG], after the fall of Assad regime they will govern the Kurdish territories in the north of Syria and assure its security.

Since PYD and Syrian government are governing Hasakah province, both were arresting and killing Kurds who were supporting the Syrian revolution and their own parties [mostly pro Barzani] which made many of them flee to Iraqi Kurdistan to live there or to join their political parties.
