UPDATE: ISIS attack kills at least 60 in battle-scarred Kobani

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The Islamic State, or ISIS, has attacked Syria’s ethnically Kurdish town of Kobani on Thursday with a wave of car bombs and vehicle-born ground troops, said Rudaw reporter Omar Kalo who is at the scene of the attack.

“Three suicide car bombers detonated their payloads, inflicting heavy casualties among civilians,” said Kalo, who said at least 25 people have been killed by the bombings and more than 75 injured.

According to Kalo, ISIS also executed 20 residents of Bakha Botan a village 20 km outside Kobani.

The Rudaw reporter said residents had taken up arms to defend themselves and the number of ISIS attackers was unknown due to the intensity of the fighting.

“Groups of ISIS fighters are driving around Kobani’s alleys and streets killing civilians,” said Kalo.

    Kurds in Kobane are learning the lesson that Armenians learned 100 years ago: Never trust a Turk.

      A lesson the West refuses to learn. Why the *hell* do we have anything to do with those filth? They may have served a purpose during the Cold War but their usefulness is long over. Kick them out of NATO and let them degenerate into the third world islamic hellhole the majority of Turks seem to aspire to.

      At least some of the Kurds participated in the Armenian genocide.

    • I’m with you. I think we need to wipe them out.

      • After all, these scumbags only went abroad so they can rape, murder and destroy with impunity. They can’t be re-integrated into society. They must fry.
