Islamic Front Military Leader Wants to Liberate Kobanê from PKK and ISIL

Zahran Alloush is the military leader of the largest militant group in Syria, known as the Islamic Front, a conglomerate of several ex-FSA and other Salafist brigades with a total of around 60,000 fighters. He recently stated in a press conference that his group views itself as responsible for liberating Kobanê from all Kurds belonging to PKK and PYD, as he considers them allies of the Syrian government, and from the Islamic State (IS, aka ISIL or ISIS) terrorist group. ISIL is now engaged in heavy fighting in Kobanê against Kurdish fighters, many of whom belong to YPG, which is affiliated with PKK.
