Kurdish fighters took control over several districts of the Kurdish Syrian city of Kobane from the jihadists of the Islamic State group, thanks to the airstrikes of the international coalition, said a local Kurdish responsible, AFP transmitted on Thursday.
„The people’s defense units (YPG, the main Kurdish armed militia in Syria) have progressed in the east and the southeast of the city”, declared Idriss Nassen by telephone for AFP.
„Before, they (the IS jihadists) were controlling 30% of Kobane, and now they control less than 20%, thanks to the international coalition” Nassen added from the sieged city, stating that “the YPG fighters are undertaking ‘cleaning’ operations in the eastern and southeastern neighborhoods”.
According to Nassen’s statements, “the international coalition struck the Islamic State much more efficiently these days”. “We need more airstrikes along with weapons and ammunition for the fight on the ground against the jihadists”, insisted the local responsible.
