Kurds Protest Video of Free Syrian Army Mutilating, Trampling Body of Woman Fighter

Syrian Kurds have demanded the Turkish government be held responsible for a video surfacing showing Turkish-allied Free Syrian Army (FSA) combatants mutilating the body of a female Kurdish anti-jihadist fighter, stepping on her breasts, and taking selfies with her. The woman has been identified as People’s Protection Units (YPJ) fighter Amina Omar.

The NGO Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) obtained the video, allegedly from one of the individuals present at the desecration of her corpse. SOHR reported that Kobane reportedly died fighting in Bulbul, in the northern Afrin region, where the FSA has launched attacks against the YPJ and the Kurdish all-male YPG unit at the urging of the Turkish government.
