This report provides an overview of the situation in the town of Kobani as of 15 October 2014, using high resolution imagery collected by the WorldView-2 satellite. UNOSAT reviewed the town for indicators of damage and destruction and signs of ongoing fighting such as active fires, craters and fortifications. Imagery shows widespread damage along the city and numerous destroyed and severely damaged structures and craters caused by munitions impacts. Roadblocks were detected and vehicle traffic is almost entirely absent throughout the town. UNOSAT also identified the presence of trenches and fortified fighting lines on the eastern side of the town. Hundreds of vehicles are also visible on the Syrian side of the border clustered around the border crossing points. Note that this analysis is not comprehensive as the satellite image utilized featured significant cloud cover.
