"Residents of Kobani, a border town in northern Syria, are struggling with loss, failed services and widespread destruction. It has been 10 months since the Kurds, backed by hundreds of American airstrikes, prevailed in repelling an invasion by the Islamic State. Now, #Kobani is trying to overcome the deep scars of the war and rebuild. And there are signs of life: Shops selling cellphones, cigarettes and grilled chicken have reopened, and thousands of displaced residents are returning each month. @nytimes staff photographer Tyler Hicks traveled to Kobani, which is known in Arabic as Ain al-Arab, while on #nytassignment."
