The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani is­sued an of­fi­cial state­ment via the of­fice of his pres­i­dency to call upon all the Kurds and the world to help rebuild the city of Kobani in Syria. Barzani's mes­sage re­sulted in dif­fer­ent re­ac­tions lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

The peo­ple of the city, who have been dis­placed to other cities, con­sid­ered Barzani's mes­sage cru­cial and ask all the world coun­tries to con­trib­ute to the re­con­struc­tion of Kobani.

Mus­lim Saleem, a refugee from Kobani, said "Barzani's mes­sage came in the right time and I am sure it will have pos­i­tive im­pact on many coun­tries to par­tic­i­pate in re­build­ing the city. All peo­ple from Kobani are sure that Barzani can play a cru­cial role in re­turn­ing life to Kobani as he played an im­por­tant role pre­vi­ously in not let­ting the city fall down,"

Gha­reeb Es­mat, an­other Kobani cit­i­zen, said "Barzani has al­ways showed best stand­point to­ward Kobani peo­ple. It was Barzani who did not let Kobani down. I hope the time will come when all peo­ple are con­vinced to re­turn to their homes in Kobani."

Most of the peo­ple who left Kobani did not be­lieve that they could re­turn to their homes af­ter IS de­stroyed most of the houses and build­ings in the city. Qas­sim Rasheed, who left his city be­cause of the con­tin­u­ous war, said that peo­ple have dif­fer­ent opin­ion af­ter Barzani's state­ment as they all want to go back to their homes.

Barzani, in his mes­sage, called upon all Kur­dish peo­ple and the world to help rebuild the eth­ni­cally Kur­dish city.

The Barzani Char­ity Foun­da­tion has launched a cam­paign to win the in­ter­na­tional and na­tional sup­port to help rebuild the battle-scarred city.

“From the very first step, the Barzani Char­ity Foun­da­tion has do­nated more than $500,000 to this cam­paign,” said Musa Ah­mad, Deputy Pres­i­dent of the Barzani Char­ity Foun­da­tion.
