Farmer dad and teen daughter reunited on IS front line 

Pervin Kobane is  one of the Kurdish female fighters who have been helping defend the Syrian town of Kobani from an onslaught by the Islamic State (IS), but had no idea her father had also decided to fight.
The 19-year-old bumped into her father, Farouk three weeks ago on a street corner and was surprised to see him holding a gun. 
The farmer’s daughter took up arms two years ago, signing up with the Syrian Kurdish women’s self-defence force, known by its Kurdish acronym YPJ. They now fight with the men’s unit, the YPG.
