People Greet Peshmerga in Kobane With Open Arms

The Peshmerga, the Kurdish army, arrived in Kobane from Iraq on Thursday. The local Kurds greeted the army with smiles and hugs. Journalists and people spread pictures of the joy on social media. The Kurdish army will defend the city from the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL).

Kobane is a key city for the Islamic State. It is on the border of Turkey, which would allow easier access for jihadists from abroad to join the terrorist group. Kobane also represents everything the Islamic State despises.
