You have the AUDACITY to quite Mrie's article, one that states:

The Democratic Union Party (PYD) which currently controls several 
Kurdish areas never supported the revolution. In July 2012, it reached 
an agreement with the regime to consolidate control over its territories 
in return for rejecting the opposition. It later physically fought FSA 
units.

Revolutionary Kurdish forces such as those in East Aleppo also turned on 
the FSA. By the end of 2016, Kurdish militias were actively helping the 
Damascus regime reconquer East Aleppo.
