Kobanî: City and nahiyah in Aleppo, Syria
Kobanî, officially Ayn al-Arab, is a city in the Aleppo Governorate in northern Syria, lying immediately south of the border with Turkey. As a consequence of the Syrian Civil War, the city had been under control of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) militia between 2012 and 2019. In 2014, it was declared to be the administrative center of the Kobanî Canton of the de facto autonomous Rojava, which later became the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria.
