The resistance of Kobanê in pictures
Five years ago the ISIS was defeated in Kobanê. ANF Rojava correspondent Ersin Çaksu was there and photographed the legendary resistance in the North Syrian city.
On October 15, 2014, Kobanê was surrounded on all sides and the ISIS began to occupy the city step by step. While Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan as patron saint of the ISIS was triumphantly announcing the imminent fall of Kobanê, something happened that he had not foreseen: The last word was spoken by those who resisted.
Kobanê became a symbol of hope worldwide. For 134 days, a fierce struggle was fought street by street and house by house. On 26 January 2015, the liberation of the city was announced.
