Kurds scramble to stop ISIS from taking vital Kobani enclave
Kurdish fighters from Turkey and Iraq are scrambling to help defend a vital Kurdish safe haven in northern Syria, where tens of thousands of Kurds have fled after an offensive by Islamic State (Isis) militants.

The border region of Kobani, home to half a million people, has held out for months against an onslaught by Islamists seeking to consolidate their hold over swaths of northern Syria.

But in recent days, Isis extremists have seized a series of settlements close to the town of Kobani itself, sending more than 70,000 mostly Kurdish refugees streaming across the border into Turkey.

A Kurdish commander on the ground said Isis had advanced to within 15km (9 miles) of Kobani.

A Kurdish politician from Turkey who visited Kobani on Saturday said locals told him Isis fighters were beheading people as they went from village to village.

Az3 That's easy to say from the UK, but they are surrounded by three powerful nations and have done good to survive several thousands

of years against enemies who would crush them on the open plains.

Love and respect the Kurds and their long struggle to have their own homeland. They richly deserve this! Go Peshmerga go! Fight on and win your homeland and make sure that it includes some of the Iraqi oilfields so that you can support your own national agenda when you gain your freedom.

bsflag

I don't very often use BS flag. But this is bullshit. I mean not your post but some kurdish claims that Turkey gave 49 tanks to ISIS for 49 hostages. This is totally made up by some Kurdish media. Come on, i wouldn't object against a claim, that Turkish gov gave weapons to ISIS, but 49 tanks ? Beyond ridiculous.

New reports : The situation is very critical right now in Kobani area. Heard reports that ISIS is about to capture Kamisli. The population is abot 1 million people. I am afraid ISIS can make their biggest massacre if they get the area, i hope i am wrong. But surely this can lead to dramatic change of events.
