From memory ... 6 fighters, 2 civilians turned into bells of life in Kobani

From bodies in villages forgotten for decades to immortal stories on the pages of history that wrote their moments with their blood and revived societies faced with the danger of physical and cultural annihilation. This is the story of six fighters and civilians who saved the lives of thousands of people during Kobani massacre.

After midnight, hours before the dawn, a group of 75-85 mercenaries dressed in uniforms of the People's Protection Units infiltrated from the southern villages of Kobani, north of Syria, heading deep into the city, which they lost months earlier and lost more than 5,000 of their mercenaries there in fierce battles.

The group split into two, one of which went directly to the city, and the other spread in the village of Berkh Botan, one of the largest villages in the south of the canton which people had considerable role in the battles against Daesh, the goal of the latter is to kill the largest number of citizens, and in a new scheme aimed at controlling the recently-liberated canton, the attack began in the form of gangs from the village to the south and the town of Shiyokh to the west and spread in the city to the north.

On the highway linking the city to the southern villages, the group used the pitch darkness and uniforms of the People's Protect Units to enter the city before sunrise.

Two residents of the village of Berkh Botan, which Daesh entered and committed a massacre against its residents on the same day, wondered at the convoy of cars that headed to the city. They told what they saw of the security forces Asayîş, which were close to the village.

Six members of the Internal Security Forces (Asayîş), four of them from the village, boarded a vehicle and joined the convoy. They realized that those who entered the city were not the fighters of the People's Protection Units until they arrived at the entrance to the city from the south and they were showered by bullets.

The sounds of gunfire that had been fired that morning and before the sunrise reached every village and every neighborhood in the city whose people went out to celebrate, presuming that the Daesh terrorists had been driven out of the town of Serin south of the canton, in conjunction with fierce fighting on the outskirts of the town.

It was 20 minutes after the six fighters of the Internal Security Forces clashed with Daesh's military convoy when a bombing hit the city; a car bomb north of the city that passed through the border gate with Turkey.

It was different when the citizens saw that people dressed in the uniform of the People's Protection Units were shooting at them, and the details of the plan began to unfold.

The six fighters martyred after clashes with mercenaries near the provincial administration building in the city. Thus, the city turned into a stage for street war, while the most dangerous snipers of Daesh took up the roofs of schools and buildings with strategic sites in the city and began to snipe whatever they saw.

While the People's Protection Units launched a military campaign against Daesh in the town of Serin with the air support of the International Coalition's aircraft, Turkey opened the crossing of "Murshed Pinar" near Kobani to pass a car bomb that Daesh mercenaries set up to enter to the city five months after the battle which they lost in 26 January 2015.

Salameh Ja'ji, a member of the Asayîş in the village of Burkh Bhatan and the brother of the martyr Mohammed Ja'ji, one of the six group members, said the six fighters had turned into "bells of life" for the city's residents and saved the lives of thousands of citizens.

4 hours of local resistance the villagers of Berkh Botan showed forced dozens of mercenaries to withdraw from the village and after killing 28 civilians of its people, while the villagers were able to kill a number of mercenaries.

In the city, the streets turned into pools of blood. 230 people, including children and women, lost their lives by shooting at civilians directly.

After three days of continuous battles in the city, the People's and Women's Protection Units managed to kill 85 mercenaries who had been holed up in schools and on rooftops, leaving the massacre of Kobani one of the most brutal massacres committed during the Syrian war.

The six martyrs were credited with saving Kobani from the massacre that would have been much greater than the events that took place against their people. The martyrs worked on uncovering the mercenaries plan, which they intended to spread in the city and to tighten control of their entrances and exits and to concentrate in strategic places before they started killing people. The Asayîş and their engagement with mercenaries uncovered the plan and awakened civilians and military personnel who confronted mercenaries.

A monument in the form of 6 candles and an eagle placed near the place where the six fighters Mohammed Ja'ji, Juma'a Janeid, Buzan Mustafa, Mazloum Ahmad, Ishmael Ismail and Hassan Dondar lost their lives remaining witnesses and eternal memory of those who sacrificed their lives for those who pass by that monument to live.
