An Anadolu Agency team of correspondents and cameramen entered Kobani on Tuesday, following ISIS's apparent defeat the previous day.
For the past four months, they had been watching the developments from the Turkish town of Sürüç across the border.
The victory against ISIS, which was confirmed Monday by U.S. Central Command, follows four months of resistance by Kurdish forces and coalition airstrikes.
"While the fight against ISIS is far from over, ISIS's failure in Kobani has denied them one of their strategic objectives," CENTCOM said in a statement.
The clashes have left the town in ruins, destroying whole neighborhoods, damaging infrastructure and wrecking vehicles.
There are almost no structures which have not been damaged, with public buildings and hospitals totally demolished in air bombardments, suicide attacks and mortar shells.Kurdish fighters could be seen putting up sheets and carpets to cover up broken windows to shield themselves against snipers.
