A rights group says the Kurdish forces battling the Takfiri ISIL militants in the northern Syrian city of Kobani have advanced in the heart of the flashpoint city and expelled the terrorists from several buildings.

The Britain-based so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Tuesday that the progress came after the US-led military coalition launched four airstrikes and pounded the ISIL positions in the center of the city, which is known in Arabic as Ain al-Arab.

It further noted that units of the People’s Protection (YPG) (a Kurdish force) staged a “special operation,” during which they captured six buildings used by the ISIL members.

The Kurds “captured a large amount of weapons and ammunition, including RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) rounds, light weapons, sniper guns and thousands of heavy machine gun rounds,” the Britain-based group said.

On Saturday, Kurdish forces had managed to drive the ISIL militants out of their strongholds in the eastern and southern parts of Kobani.

Earlier, Idris Nassan, a local official in the flashpoint city, said Kurdish fighters, with the assistance of Iraqi Peshmerga fighters, who crossed into Kobani on October 31, recaptured the strategic hill of Mistanour and the road that runs along the side of the hill.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on November 9 that more than 1,000 people had been killed in the fighting in Kobani since the beginning of the battle in mid-September.

As a result of the violence, more than 200,000 Kobani residents have also fled across the border to Turkey.

The ISIL terrorists currently control parts of Syria and Iraq. They have committed terrible atrocities in both countries, including mass executions and the beheading of local residents as well as foreign nationals.

About Ian Bach

Independent Online Terrorist Hunter I teach people how to hunt down and shut down the Bad guys web sites. I also teach about the various countries and cultures. Like most cases it is a small group of bsd eggs that in this case call themselves Muslims but in actual fact they are more like how KKK call themselves ",True Christisians". But in both cases / groups they preach a perverted and twisted view a religion. In the case of ISIS, all Qaeda, al Nusra, and the rest of the terrorists who claim to be true Muslims most of these groups follow the Wahhabi teachings. They are almost all Sunni and their goal is global domination. Yet they must be very bad at math and history. Since most Muslims prefer a separation of church and state and also mist are against Shari's Law. Esp the twisted and overly exaggerated form of Sharia Law that the Wahhabi and other bad guys use. I have studied terrorism, insurgencies, and the best tried and proven methods that work to fight terrorism. My Blogs have many links and articles that can show you who are the best and most knowledgeable people in the fields or counterinsurgency and counter terrorism. When I find great practitioner's I always listen to them to find out who they learned from and who they respect and admire. Thus I am always learning new stuff from the best and most successful in their fields of knoeledge. I strive to be an open and ethical source of information, I have met many awesome, kind, caring, and loving wonderful people many who I am close friends with now from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and many from S.E. Asia which also has a high percent of their populations that are Muslim.We must always strive to be aware people are not any one particular religion via that's what they chose to be, instead most people are a particular religion because that's what their parents and/or county is. I was raised Catholic but because I became Interested in magic ,(illusion - smoke n mirrors) and science which lead me to study many religions, and I would call myself an atheist. Yet sometimes when I lose my keys ZI find myself praying "Hail Marys" and a few "Our Fathers" which most always aides me in finding my keys. My belief is that if I just frantically look around for my krys, good luck it takes me for ever. But by saying these prayers it is like s sort of meditation and my mind becomes more calm, which is why it helps my find my keys.
