Kurds defend Kobane from Islamic State onslaught supported by Turkey.
[TamilNet, Friday, 03 October 2014, 10:28 GMT]
The Islamic State (IS) supported by the Turkish state has since
15th September heavily intensified their military onslaught against the
Kurdish people and their self-rule government in the region of Kobane in
Rojava (Western Kurdistan) in Northern Syria. Following the brutal
three pronged IS military assault to capture Kobane more than two
hundred thousand Kurdish civilians were forced to flee to the Turkish
border. The Turkish border which had hitherto been used unhindered by
the IS to infiltrate into Kobane to attack the Kurds had now been closed
to weaken the Kurdish resistance. Nevertheless recent information from
Rojava reports that the Kurdish resistance is growing as the IS has
suffered heavy causalities in battling the Kurdish Peoples Protection
Units (YPG/YPJ) defending the region.
The IS had also suffered heavy setback following confrontation with the
Peoples Defense Force (HPG), the armed wing of the Kurdistan Workers
party (PKK) in Sengal in Southern Kurdistan (Northern Iraq).
Despite these efforts, the Kurdish people are facing a dreadful
situation which will result in genocide if not the military onslaught is
countered or arrested.
Subsequently, as the IS attempted to capture the Kurdish district of
Kobane, the Turkish state closed the borders to prevent Kurds fleeing
into northern Kurdistan and Kurds entering and re-entering into Rojava
to fight the IS.
Thousands of Kurds have crossed into Rojava following a call from the
PKK and its imprisoned leader Abdulla Ocalan urging Kurds from
everywhere to defend Kobane. The statement from the leader followed
earlier statements from the PKK calling Kurds in Turkey to cross the
border and mobilize for a united national resistance.
Turkish police and security forces have also crack down on Kurdish
protesters who were condemning the Turkish States support of the IS near
the Kobane-Turkey border.
In a similar spirit, Kurds across the European capitals have also protested outside Turkish embassies.
The IS started a massive military onslaught on Rojava in mid-September, collectively targeting the Kurdish people.
The campaign comes in the aftermath of the defeat of the IS in southern
Kurdistan owing to the combined national defense organized by various
Kurdish organizations spearheaded by the people’s protection unit
YPG/YPJ from Rojava and the armed wing of the PKK , the HPG from
Northern Kurdistan (Turkey).
This combined with the loss of Mosul dam due to US coalition led air
strikes have led the IS to focus all its attention and resources on
Rojava in Syria.
Kobane has been at the heart of the Kurdish struggle for
self-determination and national resistance since the outbreak of the
Syrian civil war.
The Kurds of Rojava under the assistance of the PKK and its associate
organizations mobilized self-rule and national armed resistance through
the establishment of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its armed wing
the YPG/YPJ in 19th July 2012 in Kobane.
The IS has since 2012 tried to capture Kobane with its latest effort
starting in July this year following the rapid capture of Mosul in
Northern Iraq, when the region was effectively encircled and cut off
from the rest of Rojava.
The Kobane canton is situated between the Kurdish self-ruled cantons of
Efrin and Cizire, and is also located near the IS headquarters of
Al-Raqqa, thereby the capture of Kobane would also effectively bring
about a disjuncture of the Kurdish homeland in Rojava.
Kobane, beside its strategic importance is symbolically vital for the
Kurdish national struggle as it has since the inception of the PKK in
1979 contributed strongly to the PKK and the Kurdish national cause.
In an interview to the Turkish alternative news Ozgur Gundem, a member
of the YPG Rojava general command Meysa Ebdo discerned the international
backing of the IS, the intention to destroy Kobane and the commitment
of the Kurds to resist:
“They want to break about geography, peoples and cultures.
Here it is the shining of the Kurdish people in the Middle East, their
existence as an independent power, their ability to act without
receiving support from anyone and their heroism that have has been
targeted. These international powers are anticipating the liquidation of
Kobane in accordance with their own interests. They look at the Kurdish
people and other peoples as an obstacle in the way of their plans.
….Coming to the goal of the attacks, Kobanê is a small place. It is
surrounded by the [ISIS] gangs on three sides, and on the fourth side is
Turkey which supports the gangs. These attacks are not attacks that
could be coordinated by these gangs. No force could persist like that in
front of us. This is an international operation. When, how, on what
flank and at what points they will attack is always established. The
geography has been studied village by village, hamlet by hamlet. The
tactics are even established. There are many different wings of the
attack against Kobanê and each wing represents a state. In fact even
among ourselves there is a traitorous element. All the plans are
directed toward taking Kobanê. We are fighting against them and we will
continue to fight. Even if the whole world joins to fight against us we
will never take a step backward.”
The heroic resistance of the YPG and their commitment to not
give up the hard-earned sovereignty of their people resembles the spirit
of Pirapaharan's LTTE.
The US camp of the international community is accused of being behind
the scene and orchestrating a dirty geo-political gambit to nullify the
PKK-led Kurdish revolution at Rojava.
Eezham Tamils were also subjected to such a sophisticated form of
counterinsurgency presided over by the Strategic Partnership of the U.S
and Indian Establishments in which the entire egalitarian state system
built up by the LTTE and the national armed resistance which made the
former achievable were annihilated alongside the genocidal massacres of
tens of thousands of Tamil civilians and their fighters.
The spirit espoused by the present Kurdish resistance should inspire
Tamils to carry forth the political struggle for justice, national
rights and liberation with fortitude, resilience and commitment.
Furthermore, the words from the YPG commander should also inspire the
Tamils us to take lessons from the 30 years of national armed resistance
and the resistance put forth by the LTTE against unholy alliance
effectuating a united International Community of Establishments bound to
see the military solution to the national question in the island
‘succeed’ in which genocide was deemed as a ‘necessary means’ to destroy
the sovereignty of the Eezham Tamils:
“Let our people know that for a long time here a heroic
struggle has been waged for the identity, existence and rights of the
Kurdish people. We have lost martyrs in every village and hamlet and on
every hill. We have had wounded in every village. In some places they
stood over our corpses, but they will never, never trample upon the
honor of the Kurdish people. In every resistance we grew the resistance
of our people and will continue to grow. As long as one of us remains we
will continue to fight as we have fought, village to village, house to
house. This is the home of resistance. The Kurdish people must take
moral from this resistance. We are not fighting with such a small power.
The world is passing over us. The entire world is passing through a
small town. We will suffer thousands of losses. If just one freedom
fighter remains we will still resist. Our people must take ownership for
the magnitude of the resistance here. It should look at it as a symbol
and forge unity. It should adopt a stance against internal treachery.
This people should recognize those who do not want to unify and only
watch or even watch saying look how Kobanê will fall. Here we are
fighting against tanks with braves. And alongside of this there is great
psychological war being waged against us. However the resistance of the
last ten days will without a doubt be one of the foundation stones of a
free Kurdistan. There will be a Kurdish people which has won
absolutely. Everyone got to know the Kurds once more in this resistance.
If we are going to live in this world it will be honorably and with a
free identity. “
