BEIRUT: Kurdish YPG forces expelled ISIS fighters from Syria’s Kobani on Saturday and took back full control of the town on the Turkish border, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

There were still some clashes between the YPG and the militant group to the south of the town, the Observatory’s founder Rami Abdulrahman said.

ISIS has killed around 200 people in the Kobani area since launching a raid on the town early on Thursday, he added.

    BEYROUTH, 27 juin (Reuters) - Les miliciens kurdes de l'YPG 
ont repoussé l'offensive des djihadistes de l'Etat islamique 
contre la ville syrienne de Kobani à la frontière turque et en 
ont repris la totalité du contrôle, rapporte l'Observatoire 
syrien des droits de l'homme (OSDH), samedi. 
    Des combats se poursuivent entre les peshmergas et les 
islamistes au sud de la localité, a précisé l'OSDH. 
    Les combattants de l'Etat islamique auraient tué environ 200

  4. i am not mates with Harpal, and i dont know him. However, the cpgb ml are right about many things.
    Saddam Hussein, whatever his faults, and there are plenty, will go down as a martyr of Iraqi resistance. furthermore, i honestly wonder how many people in Iraq are dreaming of the good old days under Saddam, when they could go on with their lives in relative peace.

    I am not a tankie, not even sure what it means. But the ones who should be ashamed are those leftists who supported intervention.
