They wanted to show solidarity – these young volunteers from socialist youth associations and leftist groups wanted to help the city of Kobani and its residents, who have suffered under the brutal consequences of IS terror. They wanted to show humanity in the midst of a barbaric war.
The brutal attack on the leftist cultural center is a despicable and horrendous crime. My thoughts are with the victims and their families.
