Terrorist ISIL shells refugee camp in Kobani
The Takfiri ISIL terrorist group has shelled a camp sheltering people displaced from the volatile Syrian town of Kobani, killing two civilians.
According to Press TV, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Saturday that ISIL shelling left two civilians dead and injured four others, including a child, at a camp for the people forced by violence from Kobani to the west of the strategic town.
Syrian Kurdish forces backed by Iraqi Peshmerga fighters have been fighting to drive the ISIL terrorists out of the border town, most of whose residents have escaped.
Around 150 Peshmerga forces, armed with heavy weaponry, including anti-aircraft machine guns and mobile rocket launchers, entered Kobani in over a dozen trucks and jeeps last Friday from Turkey to join the anti-ISIL fight.
They received a heroes’ welcome by Turkish Kurds and Syrian Kurdish refugees.
Kobani and its surroundings have been under attack since mid-September, with the ISIL terrorists capturing dozens of nearby Kurdish villages and killing hundreds of people. More than 200,000 people have also fled across the border into Turkey.
