The defeat of ISIS militants in the border town of Tal Abyad this month has unleashed a wave of anger by opposition supporters at the main Kurdish party, the PYD and its affiliated militia amid charges they committed "ethnic cleansing" or other violations against non-Kurds in the newly seized areas.The opposition-in-exile National Coalition Saturday accused the PYD and the YPG militia of a range of violations against residents of northern Syria, based on the preliminary work of a fact-finding committee.The Coalition also accused the YPG of giving the international anti-ISIS coalition the coordinates of villages whose populations refused to leave, claiming that the Kurdish militia told residents that they would be targeted by airstrikes if they failed to heed its orders.A nationwide protest was held earlier this month under the harsh slogan "the PYD: another face of terror," as a leading activist group, the Syrian Revolution General Commission, explicitly put the party on par with both the Assad regime and ISIS extremists.Many in the Syrian opposition, among them many Kurds, say that the party can be just as dictatorial as the Assad regime.
