Thousands of revolutionaries have taken their place in our struggle in Rojava and north Syria in a time when the Rojava Revolution became a growing hope for all the oppressed peoples and inspired them with the resistance across the region. Hîwa Bosco, one of hundreds of revolutionaries, who was born in Italy and joined the fight against ISIS in Rojava Kurdistan and north Syria was martyred due to an unfortunate accident while he was on his duty. Comrade Hîwa joined the ranks of freedom with the same feeling and motivation as internationalist fighters influenced by the free and the democratic system that the Rojava revolution created with great costs. Throughout his life in the struggle of liberation he has set an example to true revolutionary life. He has relentlessly put up great efforts to be a part of the struggle in the most effective way on the basis of the principles set forth by the struggle of freedom and has always acted on the basis of these values ​​until the last moment of his life.
