He also fought with great sacrifice and determination in the Jazira Storm campaign to oust ISIS from its final enclave in Deir al-Zour. Comrade Tekoşer played an active role in the TKP/ML-TİKKO international units during his time in the region, with a principled and determined stance that embodies the universal values of socialism.
Comrade Tekoşer, who led an exemplary life through his devotion to the revolution, was martyred on March 18th during a conflict as part of operations against the last area occupied by ISIS.
