The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Ma­soud Barzani con­demned the Is­lamic State (IS) group’s at­tack on the Kur­dish town of Kobani in Syria.

In a state­ment on Thurs­day, Barzani called on the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity to stand by Kobani and asked the US-led coali­tion to sup­port Kur­dish fight­ers in their fight against the ISIS.

“The mur­der­ous ter­ror­ists once again launched an at­tack on our sis­ters and broth­ers in Kobani and killed and in­jured a num­ber of civil­ians,” Barzani said. He de­scribed the IS at­tack as in­hu­mane and cruel.

He also added that the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment (KRG) is ready to sup­port and aid the Kurds in Kobani and the rest of Ro­java, or Syr­ian Kur­dis­tan.

IS mil­i­tants dis­guised as Kur­dish se­cu­rity forces in­fil­trated Kobani on Thurs­day and killed many civil­ians.

"At least 45 were mas­sa­cred and 150 were in­jured by the IS thugs," said Re­dur Xelil, a spokesman for the Kur­dish Peo­ple’s Pro­tec­tion Units, YPG, the mili­tia which con­trols Kobani.
