According to Save Kobane, a pro-Kurdish group: "The photo of the fallen guerrilla (without any censor bar) was initially shared by the Turkish security forces who took the picture, circulating within Turkish nationalistic networks who have been celebrating the picture with pride."

The images, which since have been widely shared on social media, have raised much public anger against the NATO ally. The pro-Kurdish groups also alleged that Ekin Van was tortured and killed, after she was captured on 10 August in "full uniform."
