Kobanê has bidden farewell to a legend: Hardem, also known as Musa the Sniper – Murat Bay

“He became martyr, but he saved hundreds of lives. Every sniper he has trained will escalate the struggle in his memory. So the hero of Kobanê, Musa the sniper will live forever.” Following the liberation of the city centre of Kobanê, the perception of the general public that the war is over, in a way, isolates the struggle of Kobanê.

That night she applied henna to her daughter’s hand, she cuddled her up and then put her in the fridge … – Murat Bay

“My mother never cried next to us, not to demoralize us. She would say ‘I am sorry for our loss, there is nothing else to be done’. But she would secretly cry.
