Kurdish fighters killed more than 20 ISIS militants during continued
fighting in the villages around Kobane which was liberated earlier this
week after months of bitter street fighting. In
one village, a Kurd was today pictured standing over the bodies of
Islamic extremists after they were killed in Halimce, a village east of
Kurdish forces recaptured
the town on January 26 in a symbolic blow to the jihadists who have
seized large swathes of territory in their onslaught across Syria and
Iraq. But the town is now characterised by demolished buildings, with
heavily armed fighters roaming otherwise deserted, rubble-strewn streets.
Although their town has been liberated, thousands of residents
are now settling into Turkey’s newest refugee camp for an indefinite
stay and have been warned not to return until the area has been fully
secured. (Courtesy – UK Daily Mail). See the photos below..
