Kurdish forces kill five ISIS suicide bombers south Kobane

Kurdish fighters of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) were able Monday to kill five suicide bombers from the extremist group of ISIS near Kobane in the Syrian province of Aleppo, military sources reported.

Kurdish fighters of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) were able Monday to kill five suicide bombers from the extremist group of ISIS near Kobane in the Syrian province of Aleppo, military sources reported.

YPG spokesman Haboun Osman reported that several ISIS gunmen, dressed in YPG uniforms, tried to infiltrate into the Kurdish city of Kobane through a Kurdish-held checkpoint in southern Sirrin.

“The YPG fighters clashed with them and were able to kill three suicide bombers who blew themselves up during the clashes,” according to the source.

“Two ISIS fighters tried to flee, but our fighters (YPG) were able to shoot them dead as well,” the spokesman said, pointing out that the Kurdish forces extended their military operations in the area on Monday evening in search for other insurgents.

The ISIS move comes while thousands of Syrian Kurds gather in Kobane and other Kurdish areas in Syria, Iraq, Turkey, and Iran to celebrate the National Day “Newroz“. The terror group was apparently trying to target Kurdish celebrators, according to activists.

The hardline group considers all Newroz celebrators as apostates, and that they must either repent or be bought to a Sharia court for prosecution and punishment.
