Four days after the militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) stormed into the Kurdish city of Kobane (‘Ayn Al-‘Arab), the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) pushed the terrorist group back to Turkey, while also securing the strategic border-crossing into this part of northern Syria.
The YPG’s success at Kobane comes 72 hours after terrorists from ISIS brutally executed over 200 civilians inside the city, making this inhuman act of aggression the second largest massacre committed by the terrorist group – the first being the massacre of 500 civilians at the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) in east Homs.
According to YPG social media activists in the city of Kobane, the aforementioned group killed over 80 enemy combatants from ISIS before the latter retreated to Turkey in order to avoid anymore casualties.
ISIS is believed to have infiltrated into the city of Kobane with help from the Turkish Army at the border-crossing, where the terrorist group was dressed in camouflage army fatigues in order to cross into Syria.
The United Nations and the Arab League have yet to condemn the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham for the massacre of 200 civilians in Kobane; this has come as no surprise, as the aforementioned political entities have been reluctant in their condemnation of Turkey for assisting Al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
