Syria town of Kobani on Turkish border will fall to ISIS, Turkish leader says

Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the Syrian border town of Kobani, under siege by Islamic State in Iraq and Syria fighters, is about to fall to militants.

Erdogan made the comments Tuesday during an address to Syrian refugees at a camp in Gaziantep province, near the border with Syria. Erdogan said aerial bombardments alone may not be enough to stop ISIS and called for support of opposition forces.
