1294 ISIS members killed in Kobane –

Firat – According to figures released yesterday by YPG sources on the 30th day in ISIS’s attack on Kobanê, 1,294 ISIS fighters have been killed in the fighting over the last one month. Ten tanks and a large number of military vehicles have also been destroyed and a large number of military equipment has been captured.

Kobanê, which has been under siege by ISIS for a year and a half, has been under heavy attack since September 15th. The goal of ISIS, which has brought up reinforcements from its centers as far away as Mosul and Rakka, was to capture Kobanê quickly. However owing to the resistance of YPG and YPJ fighters they were unable to carry out their plan. ISIS, which wants to lessen the pain of its defeats in Jezza, Sinjar Til Hemis and Rabia, wanted victory in Kobanê and began attacking on all three fronts around the city with heavy weapons.

ISIS has intensified its attacks on Kobanê with weapons captured from the Syrian and Iraqi armies and the support of Turkey. However the open support given to the gangs by Turkey has been noticed by the public.

On September 20th Turkey sent 5 trucks full of rockets and heavy machine guns. These arms were delivered to ISIS near the village of Qeremox in the El-Bet region of the Kobanê canton. This support has been documented on multiple occasions. The ISIS gangs, receiving support from Turkey and other regional powers, have massacred scores of civilians around Kobanê including children, women and the elderly. The gangs, now attacking the city center, have been dealt serious blows over recent days and have lost many of their forward positions. In fighting with the YPG/YPJ over the course of the last month 1,294 ISIS have been killed and a large quantity of military equipment and weapons were captured.
