Dozens of journalists in Kobane canton celebrated the fourth anniversary of the martyrdom of Ronahi TV Mustafa Muhammad at Dijla Shrine.

For her part, Aisha Affendi, member of the Martyrs' Families Council, said: "The journalists in Rojava took great steps to communicate Rojava Revolution to the international community. They paid the price of that for their lives, in exchange for extinguishing the fire of strife that targeted the revolution over the past years."

The family of the martyr also thanked all the attendees, and confirmed their pride with the martyr Mustafa and the path he took.
