Arab refugees donate blood for Peshmerga

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region— A group of Arab refugees in Erbil has launched an initiative to donate blood to the Peshmerga forces battling militants of the Islamic State (ISIS) in Iraq.
 
The blood donors said they wanted to show their appreciation for the efforts of the Peshmerga forces in protecting civilians. 
 
Organizers claim Arab refugees across Kurdistan have responded to the call and showed willingness to donate blood to support Peshmarga efforts.  
 
Rudaw correspondent Mustafa Goran reports from Erbil.

The arabs in KRG and Kurdistan can come to Europe, the door is open. Take your chanse because the kurds will not want you when the war is done.

There are 1 million arab refugees in Kurdistan who are protected thanks to the over 1 thousand Peshmerga martyrer and just 10 or 20 arabs gathered to donate their blood, thats weak.

we don't need their blood. they are the families of ISIS terrorists. we protect them, feed them and shelter them, while their sons fight for ISIS and attack Kurdistan.Send them home, before it's too late.

racists and bigots in kurdistan should be ashamed of themselves. There are many arabs, turks with good hearts. at the same time there many rascal kurds who even have no mercy on kurds

However Saudi Arabia must accept 1 million Iraqi and Syrian refugees for asylum. Grant all men and women work permits and then they will be self sufficient..no need for aid.

For Turkey only Kurds that accept to be 3rd. class citizens are brothers, all others are enemies.

If the Peshmerga were half as brave as they claim to be, they would be fighting Turkey alongside the PKK instead of standing around and "condemning"...
