Also, the ISIL militants infiltrated into the Kurdish village of Qolan in the Southern countryside of Kobani, North Syria, and abducted dozens of civilians, local sources reported.
The sources said that there are women and children among the abductees, who have recently returned to their hometown after Kurdish forces of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) regained the area and expelled militants of the radical group, ARA News reported.
“The ISIL terrorists took advantage of the absence of the Kurdish forces on Monday afternoon and infiltrated into the village,” a local source said.
“They’ve taken several Kurdish families as hostages,” the source said.
“As our forces were dismantling mines left by the ISIL in the Eastern side of Kobani, the terrorist group broke into the civilians houses and kidnapped dozens from the village of Qolan.” YPG fighter Sarhad Abbas said.
“We are concerned about the destiny of the abductees. We are aware that the barbarians of the ISIL use civilians as human shields during a battle, that’s why we are deeply concerned,” Abbas said.
Kurdish forces of the YPG and Pishmarga liberated the city of Kobani in January, after four months of fierce battles with the radical group of the ISIL.
In June, some ISIL militants infiltrated into Kobani city and committed a massacre in which dozens of civilians were slaughtered.
