Ivana Hoffman, a African-German member of Marxist-Leninist Communist Party (MLKP), was killed in fighting against the Islamic state militants in Tel Tamr on 7 March, the MLKP has announced.

Hoffman who was nicknamed Avaşin Tekoşin Güneş was involved in clashes between the IS and the Kurds over Assyrian villages in Tel Tamr, which erupted after the People’s Defence Units (YPG) attacked Tel Hamis and Tel Brak and removed the IS from there.

Hoffman was born in Germany on September 1, 1995, and fought for six months in the Hasakah province against the Islamist state terrorist militia. Her dream was to fight after the war in Syria, in Turkey and the Kurdish dominated southeast of Turkey. “Comrade Avaşin Tekoşin Güneş is immortal,”  the MLKP said in a statement.

The MLKP is a communist party from Turkey, which enjoys good ties to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

The MLKP has send volunteers to Syria to fight with the YPG since 2002, and five of these fighters until now have been killed in the provinces of Hasakah and Kobani. The MLKP also joined PKK-units in Sinjar to fight against the IS militants.

The MLKP reportedly want to form a leftist international brigade modeled after the international brigades that fought in the Spanish civil war.

A young German woman has been killed while fighting alongside Kurdish forces against Islamic State militants in northeastern Syria, according to a monitoring group.

The woman, named by some sources as Ivana Hoffman, was killed on Sunday near the town of Tal Tamer where she was assisting the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in their struggle against the IS fighters.

She is the third Westerner killed among Kurdish ranks in Syria.

Hoffman, who reportedly went by the Turkish nom de guerre Avasin Tekosin Gunes, identified herself as a member of the Marxist–Leninist Communist Party (MLKP), a Hoxhaist party based in Turkey where it is listed by the government as a terrorist organisation.

A photo circulated by MLKP supporters, showing Hoffman holding the MLKP newpaper 'Atilim' ('The Leap'), location uknown.

A statement on the MLKP's website lauding Hoffman’s final hours in Syria reads: “Her dreams are our dreams, her path is our path and her memory is our honour. Comrade Avasin Tekosin Günes is immortal."

A video released by the MLKP in January purported to show Hoffman (whose faced is obscured) in the Kurdish region of Syria, also called Rojava, describing her reasons for fighting:

"We are here on the front – IS territory is right behind us," she tells the camera.

"We’ve been here for a week protecting our stronghold in order to defend the Rojava revolution.
My reason for coming to Rojava is to fight for humanity, and for rights. It represents our internationalism. We are here to fight for freedom; Rojava is the beginning. Rojava is our hope."

The MLKP was born in 1994 out of a merger of two former Marxist-Leninist parties. Their armed wing has been responsible for a number of bombings in Turkey, which they repeatedly refer to as a "fascist state", including a bomb attack at the Hilton Istanbul Bosphorous in 2004 in which four people were killed.

On its website, the MLKP alleges it has so far lost five fighters battling IS in Syria and Iraq. They have publicly called for the creation of an “international battalion” to aid the fight against IS.

"The imperialists claim that there are neither revolution nor class struggle in the 21th century,” one member, named Thalmann Demircioglu, is quoted as saying.

“But here in Rojava there is an actual revolution. For this reason all communists and internationalists should come here to defend the revolution with weapons in their hands. The experiences gathered here have to be carried back to the countries to start the revolution their [sic] as well.”
