Syrian opposition soldiers are being forced to leave their homes in Tal Abyad by the Syrian-Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), an opposition commander said Wednesday.

According to land commander Abu Mustafa, many opposition soldiers supported the PYD against ISIL over the past weeks, but now PYD has started a "witch-hunt" against them.

Abu Mustafa said that after capturing Tal Abyad, PYD members have displaced Syrian opposition soldiers from their land.

Fighting between Kurdish forces and ISIL around the Syrian town of Tal Abyad, which borders Turkey, has fueled a new wave of desperate civilians trying to escape.
