Syria Kurds Outraged Over Mutilated Body of Female Fighter

MSF is an Assyrian/Syriac Christian group in Syria working in collaboration with the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) which number over 2,000 fighters. "We instantly gave the necessary response, and we continue to do so".

The Kurds in a statement blamed the "terrorist allies of the enemy Turkish state" for mutilating the body of Kobani, who was a member of the all-female Kurdish Women's Protection Units. However, tensions between the United States and Turkey appear to have driven Ankara closer to Moscow.

The Turks accuse the YPG of having links to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has waged an insurgency in southeast Turkish for more than 30 years.

Previously, media had said that the female fighter within the YPG blew herself up amid the ongoing offensive in an attempt to turn back the armored assault by the Turkish army.

But in the last two weeks, Turkish forces have made only limited gains in Afrin, as SDF fighters, including the YPG and all-women YPJ, appear to have put up rather stiff resistance. He said the YPG fighters had fought fiercely in the initial phase of the battles and had prepared effective defensive lines.

Syrian opposition activists say rebels have shot down a warplane in the country's northwest where government forces and their allies are advancing under the cover of intense airstrikes.

Supporters of the PYD/PKK terror group have used an image of a Syrian baby who died during the siege in Syria's Eastern Ghouta to mislead people into thinking the photograph is from northwestern Afrin region where Turkey has launched a military operation. They said: "We will withdraw from Manbij.' Why don't you withdraw?"

"We came across these weapons not only in the Afrin area".

"This is the pigs of the PKK", one of the militiamen is heard saying, referring to an armed Kurdish group active in Turkey.

On Sunday, the Kurdish government in northern Syria accused Russian Federation of joining Turkey against Kurdish-controlled Afrin.

Russia, which controls Afrin's airspace, has allowed Turkey to operate its air force there for the offensive. "You allow them to settle and tell us 'Don't come to Manbij.' We will come to Manbij to hand it over to its real owners", Erdoğan told his ruling Justice and Development Party's (AKP) parliamentary group on February 6.
