Examples of Kurdish in a Sentence

  1. Ekrem Baran:

    We're celebrating now but we've suffered thousands of martyrs, massacres, mystery killings, destroyed villages, we support the peace process and expect the Kurdish people to bring peace. They are the hope of the Middle East.

  2. Eliot Engel:

    There's a reason the Obama administration and The Trump administration, at least before this point, never made such audacious legal claims. The assertion that Congress has authorized the executive branch to use force against Iran is unsound. A bipartisan majority of both houses of Congress have rejected that view in just the past few weeks through congressional findings, the administration's position is dangerous. It holds Iran directly responsible for abuses committed by armed groups under a new-fangled theory that United States would not want to see applied to our support for armed forces including the Saudi bombing campaign in Yemen and the Syrian Kurdish forces' treatment of detainees.

  3. Army Brigadier General Ernie Audino:

    The Turks fear the development of such a contiguous Kurdish-controlled region (in Syria) perhaps more than anything else … the Kurds now control territory that stretches from the Iraqi border in the East, through Qamishli to Kobani and to within 90 kilometers [55 miles] of Aleppo.

  4. Mark Esper:

  5. Cemil Bayik:

    They (the West) don't want to be in conflict with Turkey or the Kurds, so they are somehow balancing, but that is not right, if the Kurdish question (in Turkey) is not resolved, the problem of Daesh will not be resolved.
