“Comrade Hoffmann was martyred during clashes against terrorists in the Assyrian countryside of Tel Temir,” YPJ female fighter Aylan Khalil told ARA News.  “She always insisting to be in the front lines during battles,” Khalil said. “She left her country (Germany) to join us and fight against enemies of humanity, the barbarian group of #Daesh (IS).”

Hoffman reportedly died over the weekend, when IS militants intensified their offensive against positions of the YPJ and the Popular Protection Units (YPG) in the countryside of Tel Temir.

The radical group had taken over several Assyrian villages near Tel Temir two weeks ago. Since then, the Kurdish forces and some Assyrian fighters formed a joint military force and started combating the group in the countryside of Tel Temir.
