Lions of Rojava: American fighter Keith Broomfield "Gelhat Rumet" martyred in battle of Qentere (Kurdistan)
A sad day for the Lions and sad day for humanity!
As you might have already heard through the media our YPG comrade and friend Keith Lewis Broomfield- Kurdish Nom de guerre Gelhat Rumet- of Massachusetts was martyred on June 3 in a battle in the Rojava village of Qentere in Kobane. He is a first American YPG fighter martyr from Rojava.
Keith joined the YPG on the 24th of February 2015. The brave American warrior came to Kobane because he could not lean back and watch the atrocity’s which were committed by ISIS. He felt very connected to the Kurdish people and was a very generous and freedom loving person. So one day our brave warrior Keith decided to make his way to Rojava and to join the fight with the YPG. He booked his flight from the United States and joined the cause.
Keith’s generosity could be seen in his visits to the refugee camp of Suruc and his desire to help the poor Children which are growing up in such a dangerous environment.
He was a warrior with the courage and the heart of a Lion. We want to thank his mother Donna for giving birth and raising such a wonderful son. Our hearts go out to her, his family and the American people. We thank you for your sacrifice and just want to let you know that we are crying with you. But we also want to let you know that his death will be revenged. We will let ISIS feel what it means to kill one of our brothers. We will chase them from our land to the gates of hell. There will be no mercy and no turning back.
In the history books of our coming generations our children will learn of the brave foreign warriors who came to Rojava to fight for a Land that was not theirs. They came to fight for freedom and democracy, for humanity and liberty. They will never be forgotten. May our brother Keith Lewis Brommfield rest in Peace! You are a Immortal Hero. You are a brave warrior. Kurdish people will never forget you. Thank you for everything and may God bless you!
The Lions of Rojava
