  • VOA News

Images from the recently liberated Syrian town of Kobani show a city in ruins. Kurdish fighters claim to have recaptured Kobani, after fighting the Islamic State for control of the border town for months backed by U.S. airstrikes. In an interview with VOA's Kurdish service, the governor of Kobani, Anwar Moslem, said brave Kurdish men and women proved to the world that Islamic State terror can be stopped. He said it was a joint effort by the U.S.-led coalition and Syrian Kurdish YPG forces.
