Austria: Pro-Kurdish activists march in Vienna on World Kobane Day

Hundreds of pro-Kurdish demonstrators marched in Vienna on Sunday, to express their solidarity with the people from Western Kurdistan, also known as Rojava, to mark the World Kobane Day. The event commemorates the resistance of the Kurdish forces in the Syrian city of Kobane in 2014 which eventually led to the defeat of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS). In October 2019, Turkey launched an offensive, dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring', to create a 'safe zone' in north-eastern Syria cleared of Kurdish forces. It was suspended after an agreement between Russian and Turkish presidents in Sochi.
