Statement on occasion of anniversary of liberation of Kobanî

General Command of YPG | January 26, 2021

Today is the anniversary of the victory against ISIS in Kobani. On January 26, 2015, our people and fighters of People’s Defense Units and Women’s Defense Units won a historical victory against the terror group. ISIS terror reign were at its peak and its activities caused an enormous horror and intimidation among the governments and peoples of the region. The massacres committed by ISIS in various places and the fear it sparked made several armies of the region flee from their positions, thus leaving cities and towns to the mercy of ISIS. ISIS launched attacks against Kurdish city of Kobani, which later became the beginning of its fall, in September 2014 when the group was enjoying full control over large swathes of areas of Syria and Iraq.
