Its interesting because in the past some Sunni parties boycotted the Iraqi elections.

Kurdish National Unity Parties (PYNK) call on especially the Kurdistan Region Parliament, "to do their national duty against the civil war."
Hajj Issa (PYNK) pointed out that just as they view the Peshmerga as a national force, and every drop of their blood is precious, so is each one of guerrilla's. He also said any success (progress) of Kurds in any part of Kurdistan is seen as success for all Kurds.
He also appealed to the Region's president Nechirvan Barzan (@IKRPresident) & said: "We appeal to the President Nechirvan Barzani, to play his national role because this war undermines our people gains all over Kurdistan."

"We can’t say that the security situation has improved with Turkey’s entry into Syria. The Assyrians and Armenians living in towns and villages along a 120 km border, from Tel Abyad to Rish Ayno (Ras-el Ain), had to migrate." (2)
"Assyrians, who were forced to leave Rish Ayno had to abandon their property and land, which is known to be very fertile & suited for agriculture. The seizure of the land &properties by the so-called “National Army,” ... is a major problem." (3)
