On Monday the Kurdish town Kobani celebrated the victory over ISIS. The several months long battle against the terrorist organization has made the Syrian city into ruins.
On September 16th ISIS attacked the Syrian town Kobani, located a stone's throw from the NATO country Turkey. Before that ISIS had conquered 300 smaller villages around Kobani.
The massive offensive started when thousands of heavily armed extremist IS fighters stormed the city, with tanks and artillery, and also dozens of other Kurdish villages. In a short time they established control in the nearly deserted areas.
Nearly the whole civilian population in Kobani reportedly fled towards Turkey when IS attack the city, but the men who remained were ready to defend the city with everything they had.
By October ISIS had placed large parts of the Syrian city under their control. Since then, until the beginning of this week, violent battles between IS and Kurdish forces has taken place.
However On Monday the fight against ISIS was won and the victory flag was hoisted. According to Al Jazeera several thousand refugees have now been able to go back to the city called Ayn al-Arab in Arabic.
