Statement on occasion of anniversary of liberation of Kobanî

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.
