Kurdish Fighters Liberate Tens of Kobani Neighboring Villages
Kurdish fighters, who regained control of the town of Kobani on the Syrian border with Turkey on January 26, expelled ISIL terrorists from tens of the neighboring villages in major offensives.
“The number of villages that the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) have taken back from the ISIL since January 26 has exceeded 100,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Friday.
The loss of the border town is viewed as a major blow to the Takfiri terrorists, which started advancing on the town on September 16, 2014, in order to strengthen control over a long stretch of the Syrian-Turkish border.
The final battles for Kobani claimed the lives of more than 1,600 people, most of them from ISIL.
Some 200,000 people escaped to Turkey from Kobani and the adjacent villages due to the clashes over the past few months and now most of them cannot return because of the scope of destruction.
At least 3,710 ISIL terrorists have been killed in the Syrian border town of Kobani after more than four months of fighting.
Top Syrian Kurdish military commanders announced in a new report on Saturday that the ISIL terrorists suffered major losses during the four-month-long fighting, adding that the Kurdish offensives on the Takfiri group left more than 3,710 terrorists dead and 102 of their vehicles destroyed.
