Syrian Kurds Outraged after Mutilated Image of Woman Kurd Fighter Kobani Surface

  • Syrian Kurds accused Turkey-backed allied Syrian rebels of mutilating a woman fighter (of Kurdish Women’s Protection Units) named Barin Kobani and then filming her corpse. Kobani was a Kurdish fighter and participated in a US-backed campaign for driving IS terrorists from Kobani in northern Syria. The all-female Kurdish unit vowed to avenge death of Barin. Kurds also released on social media a smiling photo of Barin Kobani beside her mutilated body. The main opposition in exile, Syrian National Council condemned the barbaric act and called for immediate intervention for punishing the responsible.
