Middle East’s Occupant state Israel has come to help the Syrian Kurds against the Turkish invasion. They have taken initiatives to strengthen Kurdish relations with the United States.

The country’s deputy foreign minister said in a statement on Wednesday.

The Kurdish YPG forces served as their allies in the US campaign against the Islamic State in Syria. But earlier this year, the US decided to suddenly withdraw 1,000 U.S. troops from the Syrian north of the Kurdish region.

Following the incident, Turkey launched a military strike targeting Kurdish YPG militia forces considering it as a terrorist group.

Meanwhile, the Kurds regarded the withdrawal of the US military as a betrayal.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meanwhile, offered humanitarian assistance to the "brave Kurdish people" in a disagreed with US President Donald Trump on October 10.

Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely told Parliament on Wednesday, "The proposal has been accepted."

He added, "Israel has received numerous requests for diplomatic and humanitarian assistance. We are deeply concerned about the Kurds and supporting them through various means. '

There was no immediate comment from the Syrian Kurds about the matter.

Tzipi Hotovely did not elaborate on Israeli assistance. However, she said, "During our conversation with the United States, we have stated our position about Kurds and we are proud to stand by the Kurdish people."

Israel has maintained the military, intelligence, and business relations with Kurds scattered throughout Iraq, Turkey, Syria, and Iran since then.

"Israel's main interest is to use the Kurdish and minority groups as the moderate and western elements in northern Syria," said Hotovely.
