For all we know it could have been an assassination hit by Iraqi Peshmerga Kurds (KRG) since Massoud Barzani/Iraqi Kurds profoundly hate PKK/YPG Kurds. However I am leaning toward Turkey or possible a Mossad hit. There are reports of Turkish special forces operating in Syria.

A top commander in the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) has been assassinated in mysterious circumstances near the Syrian-Turkish border, according to local media outlets.
On Wednesday, the activist Hasakeh Press reported that an improvised explosive device blast killed Ali Boutan, who the outlet called a “YPG leader,” and two of his bodyguards as they drove along the road linking the border city of Qamishli with the nearby town of Qahtaniyeh (Tirbespiye in Kurdish).
