War against ISIS/Daesh: YPG release statistics showing collapse of Daesh in Rojava (Kurdistan)

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

The People’s Defence Units (YPG) have announced statistics relating to 2014, saying during 2014 nearly five thousand gang members have been killed in clashes and operations in different parts of Rojava.

The YPG’s official spokesperson Rêdûr Xelîl held a press conference at the Trade Union hall in the town of Rimêlan, at which he announced statistics relating to 2014.

Xelîl said that throughout 2014 there had been fierce clashes between YPG forces and ISIS gangs in different parts of Rojava, and that as far as they had been able to ascertain, 4,964 gang members had been killed in these clashes. 228 corpses had been taken by YPG forces, while 11 gang members were taken prisoner.

The YPG spokesperson evaluated the military situation and recent developments, saying the YPG forces had successfully come through 3 historic phases, adding:

“The first phase was the rescuing of tens of thousands of Yazidis from ISIS gangs in Sinjar and the opening of a humanitarian corridor so that 150 thousand Yazidis could reach Rojava. The second phase was the historic resistance against overwhelming odds in Kobanê that has astonished the world. The third phase was the ‘defence and cleansing’ operation we carried out from Tel Hemis and Serêkaniyê on a broad front including the town of Mebrûka and villages of Aliya.”

The YPG spokesperson stressed that the outstanding and memorable resistance of the YPG/YPJ fighters had not just aimed to protect the Kurdish people, but also the Arabs, Syriacs, Armenian, Chechens living in Rojava. He added that the resistance of the YPG/YPJ forces in 2014 had proved that they were the principal force that would smash ISIS. (more…)

War against ISIS/Daesh: Kobane latest – ISIS on retreat, new dangers ahead … (Kurdistan)

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

From rabbleldn:

In the last days there has been a shift in fortunes for the Kurdish defence units holding out in Kobane. Although heavy clashes continue, ISIS are being pushed back into the fringes of the town. The peoples protection units (YPG) have fought alone, for 35 days now, surrounded by ISIS (Da’esh) fascists with the latest weapons, blockaded by Turkey, with US air strikes only serving to funnel more fascist troops towards them.

Last week it looked like what everyone had feared was about to come to pass, as ISIS flags were raised towards the centre of the town. It looks, at least for now, as if the tide has been turned. This is the work of the defence groups of autonomous Rojava, fighting alone, fighting for their lives and their freedom.

In the last two days, there has also been a shift in the politics of US and Turkey. Yesterday (19 October) the US forces for the first time made air drops of small arms, ammunition, and medical supplies to the YPG (peoples defence units) in central Kobane. Then today (20 October) an announcement was reported from the Turkish state that it would allow US-backed Iraqi Kurdish fighters in to reinforce the town. (more…)

War against ISIS/Daesh: Armed Manifestation In Support Of Kobane (Turkey)

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Armed militants appeared on the streets of Diyarbakır, Southeastern Turkey tonight (20/10/2014) in a demonstration of combative solidarity with Kobane and in complete defiance of the fascist Turkish government.

The comrades expressed their anger by setting up burning barricades, throwing many molotovs and firing shots in the air. Messages of support for Kobane and denouncing the fascist Turkish state were broadcast via megaphone so all the people could hear. The comrades escaped into the night avoiding capture by Turkish security forces, all in all, a successful display of militant solidarity from deep within the Turkish state that gave hope to many Turkish people living under AKP tyranny and reminds Kobane & whole world that not all Turkish people support the barbaric actions of the criminal Erdogan regime!

#Op4Kobane : ColdHackers Attack Online Presence Of Turkish Regime (Cyberspace)

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Please note, this operation is now called #Op4Kobane, not #OpKobane anymore.

18/10/2014

Once again the comrades from Kurdish hacking collective ColdHackers have gone into action and attacked the online presence of the murderous and cowardly Turkish regime in solidarity with their YPG / YPJ brothers & sisters who are fighting for Rojava and the total liberation of Kobane.

In this latest co-ordinated wave of precision cyber attacks code-named #Op4Kobane, 6 Turkish regime-linked websites were skilfully defaced and 4 Turkish regime-linked Facebook accounts were completely hacked and at the time of this report were still in complete rebel control displaying YPG / YPJ solidarity messages and images.

On the 6 websites, a message was broadcast in Kurdish, English, French & Turkish languages. The message is as follows :

“MASSACRE IN ROJAVA WILL BE BROUGHT TO THE ACCOUNT. We will call a stop to bloodthirsty massacre of Kurdish people in Rojava. We will defy and will not remit to those who commits and supports this merciless massacre. We will take revenge on those uncivilized who slaughter the children and civilian population. O
barbarians we will breathe down your neck both in cyber and in real media, You and your brutal supporters will account for this horrible massacre. Our folk, for their freedom and liberty will fight for the last drop of their blood. Hooray freedom, Hooray Kurdistan, Hooray hero APO! Hacked By ColdHackers (KurdishHackers)!”.
