2 November 2014 - Kobane is one of the three autonomous zones that the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its allies have established since January in northern Syria known among Kurds as Rojava or West Kurdistan, much to Ankara's displeasure. The PYD and its military wing, the YPG, are seen as affiliates of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). The PKK has fought Turkish security forces for around three decades in pursuit of Kurdish rights in Turkey. "The government of Turkey would prefer to see Kobane fall," Cengiz Candar, an Istanbul-based political analyst and an adviser on Kurdish affairs to former Turkish President Turgut Ozal told Al Jazeera.
