BEIRUT, Lebanon – The Kurdish people in Lebanon have held a rally in support of the Kurdish referendum to be held on September 25.

It is the first such rally in an Arab country. There are many Kurds living in Lebanon, joined by others who have come to Lebanon from Syria following the ongoing civil war in their country.  “We as Kurdish refugees in Lebanon, altogether, with one voice are saying ‘Yes’ for the referendum for the Kurdistan Region,” shouted a Kurdish man with the voice of joy. An elderly Kurdish man from Afrin city in Rojava, or northern Syria was among the crowd saying he was there to support the move. ‘As a Kurd from Afrin living in Le`banon, I am here to support the Kurdistan Region,” he said. 

 A Kurdish couple present at the rally urged Kurds anywhere they live to support their Kurdish brothers and sisters in the Kurdistan Region in their bid for independence.  “As a Kurd living in Lebanon, I am voicing support for the Iraqi Kurdistan and all saying ‘Yes’ for referendum,” he said, urging further support by Kurds for independence referendum.  A Kurdish woman dressed in colorful Kurdish clothing with a Kurdistan flag wrapped around her neck said they “are here for their voice to be heard across the world” in supporting the Kurdistan independence referendum.
