Back in 2015 the West had to send air support when Kobani was about to fall while the nato ally Turkey was just sitting at the border enjoying how ISIS was about to take over Kobani. People might forget, we don't. #TurkeyInvadesKurdistan 

Today is Kobani Liberation Day. On January 26, 2015 Kurdish fighters, supported by @CJTFOIR  air strikes, liberated Kobani & showed that Daesh wasn’t invincible & denied them a strategic objective. Congratulations to the Kurds for being an example of a reliable, & capable partner

Today in Syria: Russia takes control of main U.S. military facility abandoned earlier this week by American forces on Trump’s orders. This area is south of Kobani and went to Russia under the Putin-Erdogan deal. Russia now also owns the airstrip we built.

Kobani is a predominantly Kurdish area and site of the turning point against ISIS in 2015. This military facility was later critical to the defeat of ISIS’s so-called caliphate. Unfortunately for the Kurds, there’s no oil in the area.

Putin-Erdogan: Assad Regime takes entire border region outside area given away in US-TR “ceasefire” last week. Turkey patrols to 10km. No outposts. Putin stood up to Erdogan more than Trump. Bottom line: Fate of historic Kurd areas (Kobani) now entirely in hands of Assad/Russia.

1/ #BREAK  I just spoke to my source in Kobani, NSyria, which is under fire by Turkish army. He told me something incredible: Acc to him, 1000s of Kurds from Kobani are right now fleeing to a US military base near Lafarge cement factory, to seek US soldiers' protection. @akhbar 

Syrian Army meet US troops on a highway as American forces move out from Kobani. Wondering if they waved to each other…

What an incredible video. Syrian army is seen passing U.S. troops on a main road near Kobani as American forces leave the area. U.S. out, Syria/Russia in. @akhbar 

Gen. kobani abdi'>Mazloum Kobani Abdi told a senior US diplomat, "You are leaving us to be slaughtered," demanding to know if the US is going to do anything to protect Syrian Kurds as Turkey continues its military operation targeting America's Kurdish allies in Syria.

1/ I want to tell u today the story of 8yr old Yazidi girl, forced to work for 3yrs as slave by ISIS fighters in Raqqa. I met her in Kobani.
