Jeremiah the prophet saw three "nations" of the "Medes" joining together to attack and defeat the army of the Chaldeans: "Ararat, Minni and Ashkenaz." The Kurds are the descendants of the Medes, and they are scattered over three regions, Anatolia, Iraq and Iran. "Minni" is the land of the Mannaeans, who lived in upper Mesopotamia, today northern Iraq. Ashkenaz would have been better translated as "Adiabenes", an ancient tribe whose capital city was Arbela, today known as Irbil or Erbil, the capital of Kurdistan, and the provincial capital of the Kurds who are of Persian or Iranian origin.
The Iraqi and Iranian factions of the Kurds, who once battled each other, are now joined in ruling the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq under the Kurdistan Regional Government. This leaves the western, or "Ararat" Medes, the Kurds of Syria/Turkey, needing to join the others in order to fulfill the prophecy.
Will this help offered to the Syrian Kurds be the mechanism by which the three factions finally join as a great "nation of the north", capable of "draw(ing) up battle lines" as Jeremiah foresaw, to overrun Babylon and defeat their armies?
