Last news from Kobanę

Since governance of Urfa has forbidden entrances to Suruç, our comrades met with other DAF members using other ways and joined the human shield group. At the same time, Turkish Armed Forces increased their attacks with gas bombs on people of Kobanę who wait at the Müşritpınar border gate.
After pushing back ISIS from dominant hills 500 meter distance from the border, YPG fell back some more from the western front in the following days. This strategic fall back is an efficient action against ISIS’ heavier weapons. Clashes increase in the night.
A “stop the city” was called in Amed in solidarity with Kobanę resistance while many shops were closed and schools boycotted in Amed and rest of Kurdistan.
The border watch is gaining importance as ISIS is receiving more supplies through Turkish border in the last days.
Comrades report that people of Kobane are persecuted in the Yumurtalik border gate. Number of ill and wounded is very high. Children are deprived of food and water. Many wounded people wait on the ground for hours without any treatment and transported to Suruc in the back of trucks.
Opportunist people try to sell vital supplies to people from Kobanę with very high prices. Border watchers from human shield group also interfere with these.ISIS bombing now intensified on the villages 1-2 km east of Kobanę and continues on West of Kobanę.
Turkish State Prepares for Assault
Harrasing fire by turkish army on October 3rd early morning is rather meaningful considering ground war planned allegedly to protect tomb of king Süleyman and the military permit. Turkish state that let ISIS militants and supplies through borders for months is pursuing other strategic gains disguised as help.
Turkish military police threatened the human shield commune that our comrades are part of, and is increasing attacks to evacuate the village.

Anarchist Women in Kobane
As revolutionary anarchists, in these days that we see Kobanę people’s struggle for freedom as our own struggle for freedom, we are raising Azadî/Freedom principle in every area. We will not allow states, capitalists or murderer gangs to give harm to Kobanę people. Our anarchist women comrades (Anarchist Women Organisation) are on the road to expand this revolutionary solidarity with saying "For destroying the borders and creating the freedom; to Kobanę!".
Long Live the Resistance of Kobanę!
Long Live the Revolution of Rojava!
