Kobanî– The attacks by Daesh (ISIS) terrorists attempting the occupation of Kobanî continued on the 123rd day. The terrorists are continuing their attacks with new reinforcements and
weapons. With a great determination, our forces of the People’s Defense Units (YPG) along with the Women’s Defense Units (YPJ) are conducting their defense against terrorist attacks.
Yesterday evening, Jan. 15, terrorist groups carried out an attack on the Eastern front with a VBIED. After blasting the car-bomb, the terrorists attempted for numerous attacks on several positions. Intense and direct confrontations were experienced in the area.
The terrorist groups today attempted to attack on all the three fronts of Kobanî. On the Southern front, the terrorists used another VBIED and a suicide operative to carry out their attacks. Heavy clashes erupted on the 48 Road and near the Sukul Hal, the fight is strongly continuing.
During these clashes our forces were able to capture a military vehicle (Humvee) of the terrorists. The number of terrorists’ casualties were not immediately verified.
Last night eight of our comrades who fearlessly stood against terrorist attacks, were martyred on the fields of battle after expressing a heroic resistance.
