Earlier today, multiple Turkish Army tanks arrived on the Syrian border-city of Kobane (‘Ayn Al-‘Arab) and stationed their vehicles on the hill overlooking Syria. Accoriding to a source, the Turkish Army deployed at least a dozen tanks to the border – the reason for this abrupt deployment is still unknown. Turkish border-police have had the daunting task of regulating the flow of traffic to and from the country, due to the massive wave of Kurdish refugees pouring into Turkey.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has continued its siege of Kobane, cutting off the village from any supply lines in Syria. Members of the YPG have called on Kurds to help aid the embattled fighters at Kobane in order to lift the siege on the city and push back ISIS forces. Kurdish fighters have travelled through the Turkish border to Kobane, breaking down barriers preventing them from entering Syira – the men are usually unarmed, but determined to protect Kurdish lands.

YPG Forces were able to repel an ISIS infiltration attempt from the western sector of the city, killing scores of militants in the process. According to a source on the ground, the YPG destroyed an ISIS tank attempting to breach the YPG frontlines on the outskirts of the city. Anti-ISIS Coalition airstrikes have been ineffective thus far, as ISIS militants continue to gain ground on the outskirts of Kobane.
