"Syria's Kurds" is the perception management version of who is in Syria's north. Some of them might still be part of the original population. BUT many of Syria's actual kurdish population fled when ISIS arrived. Going to Turkey or to Iraq. They were replaced by PKK militants who've been labelled by the 5 eyes alt and msm as the "Syrian Kurds", this is an intentional misrepresentation of reality.
Israel has maintained discreet military, intelligence and business ties with the Kurds since the 1960s, regarding the minority ethnic group whose indigenous population is split between Iraq, Turkey, Syria and Iran - as a buffer against shared adversaries.
Chief among those today are Iranian-sponsored forces deploying close to Israel's borders, including within Syria.
"Israel indeed has a salient interest in preserving the strength of the Kurds and the additional minorities in the north Syria area as moderate and pro-Western elements," Hotovely said.
"The possible collapse of the Kurdish hold in north Syria is a negative and dangerous scenario as far as Israel is concerned. It is absolutely clear that such an event would bring about a bolstering of negative elements in the area, headed by Iran.
In a rare public dissent with U.S. President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered humanitarian aid to the "gallant Kurdish people" on Oct. 10, saying they faced possible "ethnic cleansing" by Turkey and its Syrian allies.
Tzipi Hotovely, Israel's deputy foreign minister, told parliament on Wednesday that the offer had been taken up. "Israel has received many requests for assistance, mainly in the diplomatic and humanitarian realm," she said. "We identify with the deep distress of the Kurds, and we are assisting them through a range of channels."
