For centuries, the towns of Turkish Nusaybin and Syrian Qamishli were one, until politics put a border between them.

The governments of both countries have been hard on rebellious Kurdish minorities in the region. Now, with the uprising in Syria, many Kurds see the potential for major political gains.

While some want to play a greater role in the opposition, others believe Kurdish interests are best served by working with the Syrian government.
