Second anniversary of the expulsion of Daesh from the city of Kobane by YPJ and YPG

Kurdistan Solidarity Network

Today (26 January) is the second anniversary of the expulsion of Islamic State forces from the city of Kobane. Out numbered, out gunned and blockaded by Turkey the YPG, YPJ and their allies turned the city into a graveyard for the Islamic State.

It was at Kobane that the Islamic State was halted after sweeping across Iraq and Syria. Where the standing armies in Iraq and Syria fled, the militants of the YPG and YPJ stood firm.

Over 600 YPG fighters and their allies gave their lives in the battle. Let’s honour their sacrifices by making sure we redouble our efforts to support the heroic resistance in Rojava/Northern Syria and the revolution they are making.

Biji YPG! Biji YPJ! Biji Kobane!
BIJI BERXWEDANA ROJAVA!
