BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 A.M.) – A female fighter within the Kurdish People’s Protection Units paramilitary group has blown herself up amid an ongoing offensive by Turkey-led forces in Syria’s Afrin region sources report.

Sources following developments in Afrin are reporting that a Kurdish female fighter by the name of Avesta Khabur has blown herself up to in an attempt to turn back an armored assault by the Turkish Army.

The incident is said to have taken place in the village of Hemmam and that it resulted in Avesta Khabur taking the lives of several Turkish troops along with her own as well as the destruction of a battle tank.

Sources are vague about the conditions in which Avesta Khabur carried out the suicide bombing.

It is hard to believe that it was a preempted Islamist-style martyrdom operation in the fashion that jihadist factions carry out such attacks.

If the reports are true then rather it is case that Avesta likely found herself surrounded by enemy forces and – seeing no way out – then committed to the suicide attack against the Turkish Army.

The PKK have a history of conducting suicide attacks on military targets so this should be no surprise. As recently as August 2016 they took responsibility for a suicide attack on a Turkish military facility. http://www.middleeasteye.net/news/pkk-claims-responsibility-suicide-bombing-left-11-dead-turkey-1381604350 https://www.rferl.org/a/dozens-casualties-car-bomb-turkey/28181692.html In addition, the idea that suicide missions are only or even largely conducted by Islamist fighters ….”It is hard to believe that it was a preempted Islamist-style martyrdom operation in the fashion that jihadist factions carry out such attacks.” is simply incorrect. Prior to the rise of ISIS who have undoubtedly eclipsed them now, the most prolific user of the suicide attack were… Read more »

The idiots in the White House should finally punish Turkish fascist regime. It’s been long overdue. Kick them out of NATO and bomb the s**t out of them. They are islamic fascists just like ISIS.
