The predominately Kurdish militia operating in northern Syria, the People’s Protection Units (YPG), conducted a number of attacks on Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) positions in eastern Kobane (‘Ayn Al-‘Arab), killing scores of militants from the latter before capturing the strategic Kobane Library and Water Facility.

In conjunction with the capture of the Kobane Library and Water Facility, the YPG took control of 3 vital building blocks adjacent to the Library inside the city of Kobane. The YPG’s success in eastern Kobane has delivered the ISIS militants entrenched inside the city a significant blow, while also forcing the latter to have to reinforce their troops on the volatile southern front in this Aleppo Governorate area.

According to a Kurdish source, the YPG killed a substantial amount of ISIS fighters in the eastern sector of Kobane, including 3 Saudi militants that were identified as “Uthman Al-Nazih”, “Nizar Mahmoud ‘Abdel-Hadi Al-‘Attallah”, and “Mounir ‘Abdel-Lateef Al-Moussa.”

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
