ARK News: In a live broadcast on the social networking pages of one of the armed factions in Afrin Kurdistan of Syria shows a number of gunmen from the province of Deir al-Zour - eastern Syria - in the Afrin region boast of the beauty of Afrin and say that Afrin is the land of their ancestors.

The Ark Media Foundation received a copy of the passage saying: “This is the land of our ancestors and they strayed - the grandparents - on the way because of a sandstorm and they went to Deir al-Zour. This land is our land. This is the land of the Bagara clan. Here, and raise banners on it, and God protected President Erdogan because he brought us here, they were hard to us.”

The video provoked the anger of the people of Afrin and considered it an insult and mockery of the land of Afrin Kurdistan, known for its Kurdish community even before the Ottoman occupation, they themselves (the Ottomans) named Afrin to - Kurd Dagh -Kurd Mount (Kurmanc Mountain), because the area is 100/100 Kurdish and did not have any presence of the Arabs before, the influx of Arabs began in 1961 under the pretext of agrarian reform and the two clans of el-Amirat and el-Bubaneh settled in the center of Afrin and some of its villages. However, the percentage of Kurds remained 98/100.
